Shakespeare at the Castle
“Professional quality in our backyard”
“Perfect for the whole family”
“A real delight”
Have you ever just known when an idea feels right? As a group of Alliance residents met to discuss the possibility of professional Shakespeare at our castle, we had that feeling that this was a great idea. We knew that the right mix of professional artists and local talent, combined with the beautiful Glamorgan Castle, we could create something very special for our town.
And now, after three successful seasons, we’re back for a fourth. Supported by a host of private donors, local granting organizations, and the University of Mount Union, we’re ready to bring you another season of Shakespeare under the stars in a very unique location.
This summer, we’re pleased to present Shakespeare’s great comedy about the attraction of opposites - Much Ado About Nothing.
Playing July 27 – 30 at the iconic Glamorgan Castle in Alliance, Ohio.
From the Artistic Director
Journalist and Activist Dorothy Day once noted,
“We have all known the long loneliness, and we have found that the answer is community.”
The 900 audience members that saw this season’s production of Romeo & Juliet got to experience that sense of community first hand.
(A Princeton) study showed that there is a correlation between a strong arts participation and presence, and prosperity in a community, economically, socially and individually.
The power of theatre is that it is not experienced in isolation, but as part of a community, and our goal is to provide the diverse city of Alliance with a yearly opportunity to come together and share in a unique cultural event. Sitting side by side, our residents, along with visitors from beyond our town will hear the great stories of love, hope, glory, betrayal, revenge and redemption told in relevant and dynamic ways.
