Shakespeare in Paradise Update: Ringplay Productions

Shakespeare in Paradise is Growing!

Greetings to all our supporters and followers!

Shakespeare in Paradise is ramping up for its sixth season, scheduled for October 3-11 2014, with student previews starting on September 29. This year, expect to see a few changes!

The biggest change is that the festival now has its own home! The parent company of Shakespeare in Paradise, Ringplay Productions, has entered into an agreement to manage the Dundas Centre for the Performing Arts.

This is totally exciting! It means that this year, Shakespeare in Paradise will be occupying both the main theatre at the Dundas as well as the new Black Box behind. We remain committed to showcasing unique and different spaces in New Providence, but the main focus of this year's festival will be at the Dundas Centre for the Performing Arts.

So far, we can announce the following shows and dates for our festival:
