Glad you got to see the show!
There’s nothing like the experience of theatre. Laughing at the jokes, seeing how actors take on different characters, and being transported by the action that’s taking place just a few feet away.

May 10-20 — Young American Shakespeare Festival
In 2017, Commonwealth Theatre Center made history by becoming the first theatre conservatory for young people to produce the complete canon of Shakespeare’s plays. The company builds on this unmatched achievement each year with The Young American Shakespeare Festival—the largest and longest-running such Festival by and for young people in the nation.
The Merry Wives of Windsor
by William Shakespeare, directed by Jennifer Pennington
Short on funds and searching for fun, the legendary Falstaff—newly arrived in the quiet burg of Windsor—attempts a seduction of two women he believes are in love with him. But when the women discover he’s used the same letter for them both, they turn the tables on the rogue in this rousing Elizabethan farce.
by William Shakespeare, directed by Heather Burns
The dastardly Richard will claim the throne for his own, and neither allies nor family are safe in this finale to Shakespeare’s Wars of the Roses. No rest for the wicked. No mercy for the weak. No villain ever confided so much in the audience.
Measure for Measure
by William Shakespeare, directed by Charlie Sexton
Although technically a comedy, this enduring “problem play” deals with corruption and political hypocrisy among the powerful even as it delivers an entertaining blend of plots, tricks, and disguises in the build to a climax skewering the prevailing misogyny of the day.
Take the stage yourself!
