St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival
July 13 @ 8:00 am - August 17 @ 5:00 pm
Come join us in Prescott for our 2019 season of Passion and Panache! From July 13th to August 17th, we produce professional productions in an outdoor amphitheater against the backdrop of the St. Lawrence River in Prescott, Ontario makes for a unique summer theatre experience. Enjoy William Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale and an adapted version of Cyrano by Deborah McAndrew, originally by Edmund Rostand.
THE WINTER’S TALE – Shakespeare at his most brilliant, encompassing all that the theatre has to offer: drama, comedy, music, clown and romance. A beautiful tale of power, redemption, love, jealousy and forgiveness that gave us the most famous stage direction about a bear. This first production of the play at SLSF will be full of passion. CYRANO – Cyrano is in love with Roxanne – but he is cursed with the deformity of a huge nose and believes no woman could love him. Christian is in love with Roxane—but he has no gift for poetry and asks Cyrano to ghostwrite his love letters. The result is a tragicomic celebration of the romantic spirit, full of swashbuckling heroism, beauty and panache!
