Description

While Del Shakes can’t bring you a full production this summer, we’re excited to bring you the {Mostly} Virtual Festival from July 17-August 2! The (M)VF aims to celebrate all of what you love about the Annual Summer Festival at Rockwood Park – the picnics, the family fun, the t-shirt, Shakespeare, and more!

During the three weekends when we would have been sharing The Tempest this month, we’ll share a wide array of original, Shakespeare-related digital programming – most of which will be free! Free programming will debut on Facebook, and will be posted later to YouTube.
