Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival

“Our 2015 season is a celebration of the power of storytelling. Next to eating, and sleeping, and love, one of our deepest human needs is for stories,” says Artistic Director Davis McCallum. Now in his sophomore season with the company, McCallum makes his directorial debut with the Shakespearean romance/comedy, A Winter’s Tale. Five actors portray 20 different characters in a modernized version of the ever-popular comedy, A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The wily Scheherezade spins never-ending tales to save herself from her murderous husband, the king, in The Arabian Nights, an adaptation of The Book of the Thousand Nights and a Night written by playwright/director Mary Zimmerman and directed by Lileana Blain-Cruz. Five performances of An Iliad — a contemporary reworking of Homer’s epic poem about the Trojan War — are also on tap; this Obie Award-winning one-man show features veteran HVSF actor Kurt Rhoads.

Family-friendly Shakespeare. In August, fledgling actors in the HVSF Conservatory Company present four performances of the playwright’s The Tempest, giving the production a circus-like treatment that’s just the ticket for young theatergoers.
