Buffoonery, bewitchment, and bustles abound in this steampunk-inspired production of Shakespeare's magical comedy.
We're Shakespeare on Main Street! Part of the Poultney Summer Theatre Company, we are a troupe of actors and artists gathered in the small town of Poultney, VT. We have been in existence for the last decade under the artistic direction of Gary Meitrott. In 2010, we added a Junior company to our Shakespearean family. Each summer, we present vibrant, personal productions of Shakespeare's works to the public. For years, Shakespeare on Main Street has been bringing beauty to its small community, despite being faced with a small budget and no permanent theater space.
And that's where you can help! ^__^
The Dramatis Personae of Shakespeare on Main Street
Here are some clips from our past productions, including:
~A behind-the-scenes look at our 2011 production of Romeo and Juliet.
~Trinculo, Stephano, and Caliban from our 2010 "reverse Shakespearean" production of The Tempest.
~Part I of our 2009 Civil War-era production of Much Ado About Nothin'.
