THE BOYS ARE BACK IN TOWN!
August 29, 2019 – VALLEY SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL’s wildly popular Tour production of the Bard’s comedy “The Two Gentlemen of Verona” is back for a return engagement! If you missed it back in the Spring when it played in Seymour and Stratford, you’re in luck because those two crazy boys will be back this Fall for five performances in various venues around the Valley and its environs.
Valentine and Proteus are best friends until they fall in love with the same girl. Rivalry, shenanigans and mayhem ensue in this raucous comedy by the one and only William Shakespeare as only Valley Shakespeare Festival can do it! Join the two titular “gentlemen,” as they blunder and plunder their way through Italy in their pursuit of the sweet Silvia (again!)
Their first performance will be in Stratford on the grounds of the old American Shakespeare Theater, which was recently lost to a fire. The event is being held to raise funds to rebuild the theater and is called “Phoenix Season: Art from Ashes”. Along with performances from other participating organizations, Valley Shakespeare Festival will present its two-man version of “Two Gents” at 5:00 pm on Sunday, September 8th.
The weekend of October 4th -6th will be the next opportunity to see the show.
Shelton’s Plumb Library, 65 Wooster Street in Shelton, will host the program on Friday, October 4th at 6:00 pm.
Massaro Farm, 41 Ford Road in Woodbridge, will host the Saturday, October 5th showing at 6:00 pm and the Sunday, October 6th performance at 2:00 pm.
The final performance will be held at Southbury Library at 100 Poverty Road in Southbury, on Thursday, November 7th at 7:00 pm.
