Stratford on the Avenue will feature Shakespeare classics.
LUDINGTON — The second annual Stratford on the Avenue Theatre Festival will be held Aug. 25, 26, 27, and Sept. 1, 2, and 3 at the Rotary Park band shell. The two-weekend event will feature local actors in outdoor performances of Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing” and “Romeo & Juliet” (abridged version).
Tickets are $5 for Seniors (ages over 55) and students/children, and $7 for all others. They can be purchased by visiting or just prior to the performances. There will also be an auction held at the performances of a basket containing donated items and gift certificates from area businesses.
This event is produced annually to benefit a local, non-profit organization or event. This year’s beneficiary is the Lakeshore Food Club.
Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7 p.m. and Sunday performances begin at 2 p.m.
The Stage Left Theatre Company was formed in 2016 by Kara Rose and Lexi Alvesteffer. The two worked together through the Ludington Area Jaycees to create and produce the Stratford on the Avenue Theatre Festival in the summer of 2016, along with the help of local actors and supporters. The pair decided to create their own company with the mission of providing a variety of theatre experiences to the community with the potential of holding educational workshops and theatre opportunities for all ages. The group is a certified 501(c)3 non-profit with the State of Michigan.
