Thank you for a great opening weekend of AS YOU LIKE IT

As You Like It, directed by Vincent Carlson-Brown, kicked-off the 29th season of Shakespeare On The Green on Thursday, June 18th

The production opened to enthusiastic audiences, reaching a total of 3,498 people in the first weekend.

"excellent performances and a versatile set, [...] Nebraska Shakespeare, the presenting organization, has a winner."
-Betsie Freeman, Omaha World Herald

Along with the opening of As You Like It, the 18th heralded the return of our Scholars Forum and Shakesperience!

Forum attendees were privy to behind the scenes info and insight into topics including the conceptualization of the production, designs, puppetry, music, and more!

The evenings were rounded out by performances by Madrigal singers, sonnets from Anne Dittrick Sonnet Writing Contest Winners, and great food, souvenirs, and raffles in Founders' Towne Square.

We hope that you'll join us for the opening of Othello, on Thursday, June 25th.

What to look forward to in the upcoming weeks:
