Shakespeare Upon Avon

Presented by UnCovered Theatre Company and Rochester University Theatre

Our audience favorite summer Shakespeare Festival has been renamed to… Shakespeare Upon Avon! Every July, professional actors and directors around the country team up with the students and faculty of the Rochester University Theatre Department to present an outdoor summer performance of one of the Bard’s greatest works. Inspired by the Globe Theater in London, these award-winning productions combine teamwork, imagination, and unconventional casting to bring you all of the energy, creativity, and fun that Shakespeare intended! Past shows include The Comedy of Errors, Macbeth, Romeo and Juliet, and As You Like It. Bring your lawn chairs and enjoy our lovely outdoor stage overlooking Lake Norcentra Park!
