If you watch shows like Downton Abbey, The Crown, and Outlander as much for their fabulous period costumes as for their great stories, this event is for you! Travel back in time and get an insider’s glimpse of some of the Shakespeare Theatre’s favorite costumes, where the streets of Romeo and Juliet’s Verona, Italy become our “runway.” You’ll get an earful of fascinating fashion facts and the Theatre’s costumers will talk about some of the particular challenges of creating period clothing in modern times. There will be funny moments, a rich array of music, and “a blaze of finery” with our company artists appearing as our “top models”!
Tickets are $35 and include a wine and cheese reception, so you can enjoy some nibbles before feasting your eyes on these beautiful costumes. Great event for groups!
Something Merry This Way Comes

Our annual holiday gift for our audience, Something Merry is just that – a collage of merry holiday tales, songs, and poems read by company members. We try to provide an antidote to the commercial glitz and blitz that permeates our lives each year at holiday time with this refreshing, nostalgic celebration of all the good things that the season symbolizes and encourages.
