Fall Festival of Shakespeare
The Fall Festival of Shakespeare is a non-competitive region-wide collaboration between Portland Playhouse and area high schools.
The Festival is a spectacular theatrical event, in part because student actors connect well to Shakespeare; they get the passion, large stakes, disaster…high school is not unlike an Elizabethan Tragedy. But the biggest surprise is the creation of an electric and fully engaged audience during the Festival. This Festival audience is the most active and alive theatre audience you will ever encounter. They “oooh” and “ahhh”; call out “Oh no she didn’t”; scream and laugh. It’s the closest thing we have to how an Elizabethan audience at Shakespeare’s Globe might have reacted. It’s an unforgettable experience for the students involved, and an engaging cultural phenomenon for everyone to witness.
