Shakespearean Easter Revel & Renaissance Faire
Presented by Austin Shakespeare Festival
April 6 - April 8, 2007
Austin Shakespeare Festival's Easter Revel weekend (Elizabethan for “gala”) includes a variety of authentic renaissance activities, performances, exhibition sword fighting, family fun, egg hunt plus delectable food and drink from Austin’s finest restaurants and merchants.
Most notably, the festival will include performances of
ASF’s acclaimed production of “As You Like It” in the Curtain Theatre, a replica of the original Globe Theatre built by Richard Garriott that is nestled in the hills of Garriott’s West Austin estate. This is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to see the works of Shakespeare just as Shakespeare and his Elizabethan audiences would have experienced it!
The entire event is a benefit to support ongoing production costs for our award winning Austin Shakespeare Festival (ASF) company.
