Bard Fest 2016 Bard Fest will run for 3 weekends, this October: Bard Fest Oct 13-16 / 20-23 / 27-30.
Bard Fest is a new Indianapolis Shakespeare Festival that focuses on an actor-focused quality festival expierence. Bard Fest Indy was founded in 2015, by 3 Indiana-based theatre companies (First Folio, CRP and the Garfield Shakespeare Co.) to bring a professional quality, yet intimate, Shakespeare Festival experience to Central Indiana all under one black-box's roof. In it's first year, Bard Fest provided paying work to just over 40 local area actors and housed 3 well-reveiwed Shakespeare performances: As You Like It (First Folio), Othello (Garfield Shakespeare Co.) & Timon of Athens (CRP).
BARD FEST'S MISSION:
Unique companies. Unique shows. Bridging the gap between our city and The Bard with professional quality, actor-focused, accessable Shakespeare.
