North Carolina Shakespeare Festival Suspending Operations

The North Carolina Shakespeare Festival is suspending operations, effective immediately.

Like many arts organizations, NCShakes has faced extreme financial challenges in a difficult fundraising climate. The Board of Trustees, leadership and staff of NCShakes have worked diligently to overcome these challenges. The Board of NCShakes has unfortunately determined that NCShakes’ financial circumstances require a suspension of operations and a substantial reduction of expenses at this time.

The Board of Trustees of NCShakes remains optimistic that NCShakes will be able to continue to provide its Shakespeare To Go educational programming in 2014. The Board of Trustees of NCShakes also will evaluate other programming in the future.

NCShakes has entertained, educated and enriched the lives of North Carolina students and citizens with professional productions of the world’s great plays for 35 years. NCShakes has played a leading role in providing artistic excellence and educational opportunities in the High Point community and throughout the state.
