We’re sad that we can’t bring you Shakespeare on our Vanier Park stages this summer, but you can still look to digital spaces to find some great Shakespeare entertainment.
We’re ready to guide you to the best of it, from close to home and around the world, with our new feature: Bard’s Guide to Shakespeare Online.
It’s a curated list of Shakespeare-related content you’ll love – from live-streamed plays to podcasts and more – all in one convenient location. Check back often as we’ll be updating the Guide regularly!
For our 2021 Season, we’re pleased to be able to tell you that we intend to bring you the plays we’d programmed for our 2020 Festival: they are A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Henry V, Love’s Labour’s Lost, and Paradise Lost by Erin Shields. Each production is based on a unique and original vision and we’re committed to bringing those visions to life next summer. We’ll bring you more details about our 2021 programming in the months to come.
We’re also excited about the innovative new ways we’ll be entertaining and connecting with you in the meantime; be sure to revisit our website and subscribe to our E-News for details on upcoming Education programs and opportunities, virtual gatherings and more.
For now, we salute and say thank you to all the organizations and individuals who have been working alongside us to present a 2020 Season. They include our sponsors, donors, business partners, and all our valued supporters including the Canada Council for the Arts, the BC Arts Council and the City of Vancouver Cultural Services, as well as the Vancouver International Wine Festival which is our charitable benefactor.
And to all those who value and love our Festival; we pledge to bring you a vibrant and exciting season in 2021. We will all work together to bring it to life, for the benefit and joy of us all, as Bard’s tents return to Vanier Park next summer and beyond.
