Flint Hills Shakespeare Festival


Friday, September 7, 2018 - 17:00


Description: ​ ​The Flint Hills Shakespeare Festival is a community-based initiative focused on providing small-town, classical, outdoor theater and a village festival experience to local and regional patrons under the stars of northeast Kansas. Each fall, local volunteers transform a wood on the edge of town, affectionately known as Sir William's Hollow, into a rustic outdoor Shakespearean amphitheater and family friendly village festival. ​The festival was established in 2010 and has continued to grow into a successful annual event with over fifty food, game, and artisan booths spread throughout the forest that features a full length Shakespearean show nightly. Last year's show and village saw over 6,000 local and regional patrons attend over two weekends. Located in St. Marys, the festival is growing into a leading regional event. Times: The festival gates open at 5:00 PM nightly. The play begins at 6:30 PM nightly. ​Approximate run time: Merchant of Venice - 2.5 hours plus a 20 minute intermission. Beginning at 6:30 pm, the play will likely end no later than 9:30 pm. The festival gates will close at 11:00 pm all nights. (insider tip: watch the play one night and come back to enjoy the festival on a different night; Your initial ticket purchase gets you in for all six nights.)
