Festival Partners

 

Each year, in a collaboration between The Arc Theatre and Ridgeville Park, a 90-minute cutting of one of Shakespeare’s classic plays is presented to an audience under the stars.  The production is shaped uniquely for the audience and specific setting at Ridgeville Park. Our productions explore the colorful relationships and themes inherent in the Bard’s work and provide a rich interpretation of the classic storylines.

This will be Mudlark Theater's ninth year as a participant in the Shakespeare on the Ridge festival. Each year, Mudlark brings young actors to the forefront in 80-minute renditions of Shakespeare's plays. With each production, Mudlark brings old text new life with vibrant, funny, and compelling performances by astoundingly talented high schoolers. Mudlark's previous festival productions include Julius Caesar, Twelfth Night, A Midsummer Night's Dream, and Romeo & Juliet.
