Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival’s 2023 summer performances will take place on the grounds of our new home in Garrison, NY (2015 U.S. 9, Garrison, NY 10524) using our preexisting temporary theater tent while plans are still underway for construction of a permanent open-air theater venue. Audiences will continue to experience the company’s signature open-air productions and pre-show picnicking on the grounds.
