$10 Tickets for Kids & Teens – Any Night, Any Section!

Summer is the perfect time to spend with family. Since I joined the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival last year, I have loved hearing from so many of you that performances under the tent are part of your favorite summer family traditions. Today, it’s my honor and privilege to extend a heartfelt offer and enthusiastic invitation to join me under the tent with your family this season, to celebrate those traditions and build new ones.

We are thrilled to announce the extension of our $10 Family Night discount, for the rest of our 2023 season! This special offer applies to any night and any section, for theatergoers aged 18 and younger, accompanied by an adult.

We were inspired to extend this offer after hearing recently from an audience member and parent, who shared the following with us:

I needed to share what a true joy it was to sit there with my 8 year old daughter, thoroughly enjoying a passion of mine. Having her giggle, guffaw, gasp and belly laugh throughout the production brought me more happiness than you can imagine. We LOVED the entire experience and she couldn’t stop talking about all of her favorite parts on the way home…

Having this experience last night renewed my certainty that Shakespeare and live theatre, in general, will continue to have a long lasting impact on our younger audiences who will pick up the baton in the years to come.

At HVSF, we love seeing young faces under the Tent, lit up with awe and wonder as they discover the magic of live performance, and we’d like to share that experience with every kid in the Hudson Valley. Theater has always been more than entertainment; it’s a doorway to a realm where emotions run deep, where we can laugh together, cry together, and share the beauty of the human experience.

As the steward of this truly special theater company, as well as a new parent, I am more inspired than ever to pass on this treasured tradition to the next generation. We have curated a season of captivating productions that will inspire, entertain, and leave you with a heart full of joy. With your support, we hope to foster a love for theater that will flourish in your families for generations to come, creating bonds and memories that will be cherished forever.

Thank you for being a part of our theater family. Your presence, laughter, and applause are the lifeblood that keeps the curtains rising, and we are immensely grateful for your continued support. I hope to see you (and your family!) at the theater this summer!

All my very best,

Kendra Ekelund
Managing Director

Children and Students (18 and under) will receive $10 tickets for the remainder of the 2023 season. This discount is applied by ticket type at check-out. You must show proof of age at our box office table and will receive a wristband.

HENRY V does deal with themes of war. While the production features battle scenes, they are not graphic. LOVE’S LABOR’S LOST does make reference to sex, and a minor plot point involves an unmarried couple navigating a pregnancy. Although every family’s tolerance for grown-up themes is different, we believe this production is appropriate for older children. Little ones under 5 are not permitted under the tent.
