Shakespeare Fest Announces 2019 Season

Schedule includes first musical

The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival last week announced its 2019 season, which includes, for the first time, a musical, Into the Woods, by Stephen Sondheim.

The other productions will be Much Ado About Nothing, directed by May Adrales; Cymbeline, directed by Artistic Director Davis McCallum; and Cyrano, an adaptation of Edmond Rostand’s Cyrano de Bergerac, written by Jason O’Connell and Brenda Withers and directed by Meredith McDonough. Members of the troupe also will travel to area schools to perform a 90-minute version of Julius Caesar.

Tickets for the 33rd season, which will again take place under the tent at Boscobel in Garrison, go on sale in March.
