“Outdoors and under the stars, the way it was meant to be.”
Shakespeare Northwest, the premier Shakespeare company in the Skagit Valley since 2000, annually brings a variety of Shakespeare’s works to life with a professional level cast. We perform under the stars at our outdoor venue, The Rexville-Blackrock Amphitheatre. In addition, The Summer Touring Show travels to a variety of outdoor venues.
Our capstone event is “Ironman” where we bring the season’s talent together for a full day of Shakespeare – with two full productions plus additional entertainment.
The caliber of acting within Shakespeare Northwest draws audience members from British Columbia to Oregon and from the San Juan Islands to Eastern Washington. The acting talent, drawn primarily from the Skagit Valley, also comes from Bellingham, Seattle and many points in-between. The majority of our actors are seasoned veterans, but each season we gather in new players and in the past few years have included several talented youth in our shows.
