Each Opening Night at The Shakespeare Theatre is a very special occasion, attended not only by many of our loyal subscribers, but also members of the arts community and the press. Approximately 300 attendees at each Opening Night enjoy champagne at intermission and a post-performance celebration with the show's cast and other company artists where they enjoy libations and light refreshments.
