Fall Festival of Shakespeare

The 27th Annual Fall Festival of Shakespeare will take place November 19-22, 2015 in The Tina Packer Playhouse. Follow us on Facebook!

Mt. Greylock Regional High School presents
“Henry V” in 2008.


The annual Fall Festival of Shakespeare is nine-week residency program at high schools throughout western Massachusetts and parts of neighboring New York State. Shakespeare & Company directors at each school lead nearly 500 students through a language-based exploration of a Shakespeare play, culminating in a full-scale production performed on Shakespeare & Company’s Tina Packer Playhouse for the public. The Fall Festival of Shakespeare is a crown jewel of our performance season. When these high-energy teenagers set loose the power of Shakespeare’s language in front of packed houses, the thrill is contagious.
