More About Valley Shakespeare Festival presents "KING HENRY VIII"


FREE! July 11-July 14, 7:30pm, at Veterans Memorial/Riverwalk Park, 38 Canal St, East, Shelton, CT

The play that burned down the Globe Theatre in 1613 ignites in Veteran’s Memorial Park this summer. You’re invited to join the colorful court of King Henry VIII and experience all the political intrigue, backstabbing and the divorce that rocked the kingdom. Don’t lose your head this summer!

Valley Shakespeare Festival returns to Shelton's Veterans Memorial/Riverwalk Park on July 11th-14th for its 7th Annual FREE Outdoor Summer Production, the Bard's "KING HENRY VIII. Henry VIII is quite possibly Britain's most notorious monarch, best known for his six wives (and his fondness for beheading them!)

Come early (the Park opens for the event at 6pm) and enjoy a family picnic before the sun goes down and the stars come out, both in the sky and on the stage! The shows are FREE and open to all!

More About this Event Poster: Valley Shakespeare Festival

VALLEY SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL is a young, dynamic nonprofit theater company based in Shelton that believes in the absolute necessity of the arts in a well-lived life. Our mission to entertain, inform, educate and enrich the cultural lives of the communities of Connecticut’s Naugatuck Valley.

To that end, we offer our productions in varying venues and formats, at little or no cost, so as to serve the most diverse audiences, helping to bring our different communities together and to start a meaningful dialogue about the challenges we all face.

We are a federally registered 501(c)3 nonprofit Small Professional Theater company (as designated by Actors Equity Association, the union of professional actors and stage managers), employing both professional and aspiring performers from CT, NYC and across the East Coast. We have performed in libraries, schools, bars/restaurants, senior centers, homeless shelters and parks. We offer programs which range from script-in-hand adaptations to low cost tour packages (which include study guides, workshops, adapted performances and post-performance Q & A sessions) to a free full summer outdoor production. We also offer a vigorous internship program for younger students.

It is these innovative and unconventional formats, combined with its dedication to casting both seasoned and novice performers that sets Valley Shakespeare Festival apart from other Valley theatrical companies.

Helping Valley residents to learn from and appreciate our past, communicate the needs of the present, understand the challenges of our future, and promote mutual respect for all through the magic of live theater is how VALLEY SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL endeavors to serve our community.
