Shakespeare Returns

Tonight (August 18, 2016) is the final performance of one of Muskoka’s most treasured traditions: MuskokaStageWorks’ fresh new outdoor production of Romeo and Juliet.

Performing under the stars in an idyllic riverside amphitheatre at Annie Williams Park, Romeo and Juliet marks Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary of his death. “We not only want to celebrate his work,” says MuskokaStageWorks’ artistic director, Robin Clipsham, “we want to celebrate the talented young people who live and play here in Muskoka.”

“Over the years, I’ve been able to see first-hand the talent and commitment that young people bring to the stage,” says Clipsham, a professional actor and director who’s coached and worked with young people all over Canada. “I urge anyone who might be interested in performing or working behind the scenes to come out and see what all the fun is about.”

  1. Wonderful news that Prism Theatre is back. Shakespeare in Annie Williams Park is a wonderful experience – I only wish more people knew about it – so spread the word!

  2. it is a magical little experience and it was sorely missed last year … it feels like it wasn’t quite the end of summer without it. I’m so happy … AND i am bringing two new people and returning with my two regulars 🙂 🙂
