A Winter’s Tale has everything you could want from Shakespeare, and then some. Director Patricia McGregor—and most of the company from her celebrated 2012 production of Spunk—return for a lively, family-friendly fairytale featuring youth on stage, audience participation, music, miracles, dance, and, of course, that famous bear.
The run time for A Winter's Tale is two hours and 25 minutes: Part one is approximately one hour and 10 minutes long; the intermission is 15 minutes long; and part two runs for approximately one hour.
Please note: This production includes the use of a strobe light and loud thunder effects.
