The Shawnigan Players present: A Shakespeare Festival! Yes, this year for the first time we are putting on TWO Shakespeare classics: A Midsummer Night's Dream AND Macbeth (say "the Scottish Play" if you happen to be in a theatre right now), both directed by Alex Gallacher.

Starting August 2, the Gem O' the Isle will become the hub of all things theatrical in the valley: This is the 6th year in a row The Shawnigan Players are presenting a full live theatre show with a large cast in colourful costumes in the fairy-tale-like surrounding of a small orchard and under the starry sky. Whether you have seen a show here before or not, prepare to be enchanted by the bright magic of A Midsummer Night's Dream or be thrilled by the murderous plotting of the Macbeths, all in the best possible surroundings for a play of this kind. It's a going to be one of the highlights of your summer.

Dates for Macbeth are: Aug. 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 11, 12 at 7:30pm, Matinee Aug. 13 at 2:00pm

Dates for A Midsummer Night's Dream are: Aug. 4, 8, 10 at 7:30pm, Matinee Aug. 6 at 2:00pm
