Update for 2020
Thank you for your support in 2019.
After careful consideration, the Stroud Shakespeare Festival team have decided to not hold the festival this year, but instead to focus on our 2021 event. After 2021, we are considering making the event biannual, to allow plenty of time for the necessary fundraising and administration work between each festival.
Apologies if you were hoping to apply to perform in 2020.
However, in order to raise funds for 2021, and to keep our love of Shakespeare alive and well in Stroud, the newly formed in-house Stroud Shakespeare Company, in partnership with Wise + Wayward Theatre, have decided to perform 'As You Like It' this summer at the Museum in the Park (22nd - 23rd August), as well as other venues in Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. Audition details and other performances will be announced shortly.
Thanks again for your continued support.
