JACKSON, MI (WLNS) – The Michigan Shakespeare Festival is set to hit the stage outside of Jackson for the first time in its 21 seasons.
Our media partners at MLive say reports that the festival is expanding from four to five weeks of shows, but fewer performances will be held this year at Jackson College’s Potter Center. After performances in Jackson from July 9-19, the shows will head to the Village Theater at Cherry Hill in Canton Township for three weeks, from July 29 to Aug. 16.
This year’s festival features productions of two of William Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and “Henry IV,” as well as Richard Brinsley Sheridan’s “The Rivals.”
Ticket prices range from $16-$40, depending on the customer’s age and the show’s location.
