Community Engagement: Full Circle

Radically participatory theater by, with, and for our neighbors.

Full Circle is Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival’s community engagement wing, which gives local residents firsthand access to art-making. Full Circle allows people in the Hudson Valley to experience theater from every angle—from writer to actor to stagehand, and on and on—alongside professional artists and fellow community members, with the purpose of building a more interconnected region through radically participatory theater.

Inspired by HVSF's community-driven 2016 production of OUR TOWN, we're launching Full Circle to redouble our commitment to this big, beautiful Hudson Valley and the neighbors and friends who call it home. What does this mean? Explore our current projects and priorities, and let us know if you'd like to get involved!
