About Nelson County Shakespeare Festival:
Nelson County Shakespeare Festival rehearses and performs Shakespeare’s plays by drawing from Elizabethan staging practices in an ongoing exploration of how to make modern productions happen more efficiently and with more actor input. Actors are an empowered entity in the staging and costuming and organization of the production. A manager or director acts on behalf of the playwright and a prompter is present at rehearsals to oversee entrances and exits and maintain a structure to the rehearsal as well as to feed in the lines. The Hamner acts as our Henslowe, providing a space to play and other support. Any volunteers to be our patrons – a Queen Elizabeth or a Lord Chamberlain? Please contact the Hamner!
