New Horizons, a Virtual Gala

“And yet to times in hope my verse shall stand,
Praising thy worth, despite his cruel hand.”
—Sonnet 60

Join us online for an exciting night full of humor and heart, rallying around what is essential—connection, curiosity, and humanity—as we look to and celebrate New Horizons.

Tune in to see William Shakespeare, alive and well, living on the property at Shakespeare & Company, catch a sneak peek of the upcoming Fall Festival documentary, Speak What We Feel, and reconnect with Company artists—past, present, and future—who will remind us that we’re all Shakespeare.

This event is free to all. Donations encouraged; RSVP required.
