Winters Shakespeare Workshop began more than 20 years ago when a group of parents with young teens created a program to fill those long summer evenings with Music! Performing! Working hard in good company! Our goal was to give local teens a chance to work intensely with experienced theatrical artists to create a performance for the Winters community on the Winters Park Playground Stage.
We hired an amazing director, Sarah Cohen, and we were off! Teens worked with Sarah five evenings per week. Parents worked together to find lights, make music, create sets, sew costumes, create props, and fill small acting roles as needed. We had our first show!
Eventually we became a program of Winters Friends of the Library, expanded our enrollment, wrote grants for lighting and sound equipment, and were able to hire a Director, Musical Director, acting coaches, choreographer, and costumer. Throughout our history, parents and local artists have shared their skills to complete the show, which is always performed for free, on the Park Playground Stage, with live music, in mid-July.
