Est 1951



The Autumn Term production was an adaptation of William Shakespeare's Othello, which was performed 2nd, 3rd & 5th December (there was no performance on 4th December).  The DVD has now been deposited in The Shakespeare Institute Library.


Elections were held on 8th October with the following results:  President:  Emily Oliver; Secretary:  Yolana Wassersug; Treasurer:  Ellen 'Red' Smucker.  Congratulations to all.


Shakespeare Institute Players Production Archive DVD of Doctor Faustus (2009) has now been deposited into The Shakespeare Institute Library.


The Shakespeare Institute Players Production Archive DVDs of past productions have been deposited in The Shakespeare Institute Library for academic and educational viewing.  Titles include:  Much Ado About Nothing (2009), Othello (2006), The Canterbury Tales (2005), and The Knight of the Burning Pestle (2004).  Coming soon:  The Fair Maid of the Exchange (2005) and new DVD versions of: A Midsummer Night's Dream (2003), and Much Ado About Nothing (2003).


Due to a family emergency, Much Ado About Nothing will now be directed by Kelley Costigan based on a concept by Polly Heinkel.  Jazz and flappers set the scene for this 1920s-esque production.


Voting was held on 7th May and fiery debates ensued.  However, the worthy winner of the summer production is:   Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare.  It will be performed in early July in the garden - please check back to see confirmed dates & details.


We're also hoping to get involved with the Shakespeare Birthday Procession and other scheduled events in Stratford to celebrate our local hero.


A big thank you to all who attended Doctor Faustus recently and for your feedback - such lovely emails!  We're glad you enjoyed the production.


Jonathon Macfarlane will be directing Christopher Marlowe's Doctor Faustus in March 2009.  He recently appeared at The Priest in SIP's Twelfth Night.  The production will be very gothic in design.
