Shakespeare in the State Parks 2022
Summit Players Theatre has been committed to producing high-quality, accessible, free Shakespeare across Wisconsin for eight total years. Originally a small project created by recent college graduates, we're now a fully-fledged non-profit theatre company that has served nearly 10,000 people on our travels. Our mission is simple: share empowering theatre experiences with children and communities throughout Wisconsin, regardless of income or background.
Our 2022 season reflects our commitment to growing and serving the greatest number of communities across the state of Wisconsin. We will return to 23 Wisconsin state parks for 24 programs in 2022 with MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING and an accompanying workshop. Our promise remains the same: education, fun and community togetherness in as many parts of the state as we can reach.
Two couples find their romance interrupted by revenge plotting, mistaken identities and merry madness in this fast-paced adaptation of Shakespeare's classic comedy. Six actors assume the roles of heartfelt Hero and Claudio, witty Beatrice and Benedick, brave Don Pedro, wise Leonato, villainous Don John and a host of other colorful characters.
We are committed to keeping the tour accessible to families regardless of income or where they live. That's why seeing a Summit show or playing at a workshop is always free, even though it costs us money to make it happen. Your contribution means covering the cost of bringing free Shakespeare to your area, and by donating more, you can ensure quality education and theatrical fun reach even more people across the state.
Donations to the Summit Players allow you to "pay it forward" for others who may not be able to otherwise afford theatre experiences and support the work of talented actors and artists who make our tours possible. To put it simply, we can't do it without you.
Please consider making a donation, and spread the word!
