Shakespeare in the Park 2021

Our annual Shakespeare festival returned to Wilcox Park for a 30th time with "THE COMPLETE WORKS OF WILLIAM SHAKESPEARE (abridged)[revised]" by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield! This comedic survey of the Bard's many plays is directed by Marion Markham, with production management by Aurora Productions.

Get Involved

Support the Colonial

The Colonial’s flagship event, Shakespeare in the Park, has entertained tens of thousands in Westerly’s historic Wilcox Park every August since 1991. This beloved local tradition is donation-funded, but we are committed to keeping admission free and open to the public so that anyone who wishes to see quality, professional theatre can do so, no matter their situation.

We rely on generous donations of time and treasure from people like you to make Shakespeare in the Park possible and to enable us to provide invaluable internships in the dramatic arts to local students. There are many ways to get involved and support the Colonial’s mission in the Westerly, RI—Pawcatuck, CT community. Thank you for your support!

Don't miss Shakespeare in the Park!
