Friday, March 19 and Saturday, March 22, 2014
Hear ye, hear ye! Renowned Shakespearean actors and enthusiastic small-town performers are coming together on Orcas Island for two days of classic and fun entertainment.
The 3rd Annual Shakespeare Festival will feature a production by the Seattle Shakespeare Company, parades, and impromptu acting by Orcas musicians and performers both young and old, and a variety of offerings from island restaurants, hotels and shops for visitors and locals alike. Restaurants and shops will feature Shakespearean Specials during the weekend, transforming the island into a Salish Sea version of Stratford-upon-Avon.
No festival is complete without a Parade! You are invited to take part in the Eastsound Shakespeare Parade on Saturday, March 22 at 11:00 a.m.
