About 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.

Why not consider a coupon or a promotional event? If you just need to keep yourself in the public eye you might want to think about placing an eye-catching full-color ad. You can choose your medium: the website, the mobile app, the weekly newsletter, our popular wall calendar, or any combination of the four.

With your account you'll also have the opportunity to post events that will appear on our website, in our weekly newsletter, and on our mobile app. Please remember that Town Planner is a franchise and all events are subject to approval by the local publisher in your area. As a general rule, our publishers are happy to accept non-profit events, but some publishers may have individual policies concerning for-profit events or events that compete with paying Town Planner sponsors. If you're uncertain about your event, please feel free to contact your local publisher to inquire about his or her policies prior to posting.

Remember too that we are a family friendly organization and reserve the right to reject any events that we deem inappropriate for our calendar or online media tools.

We want to bring the Town Planner to even more towns across America. If you or someone you know want to earn a good living while promoting local businesses and building hometown pride, please consider becoming a Town Planner publisher today!
