This here is a page about the Playhouse in Staunton, Va. I will put up information about it, play reviews, and about programs they offer.

The playhouse is designed to look like a Shakespeare playhouse. Only where they act it looks like that. Everything else is pretty modern.


Educational Programs

Young Company Theatre Camp (YCTC)
Midsummer Day Camp

Shakespeare Staging Conditions

Romeo & Juliet Review


"Romeo, Romeo, where for art thou Romeo"
-Juliet

Romeo & Juliet was fantastic, because it had great acting, a great cast, and lots of comedy.
This love story is one of Shakespeare's most famous plays. My dad who was with me always
enjoys the plays. I had a great time, and hope to see, and review, more plays.

A Christmas Carol Review


Macbeth Review


Macbeth was fantastic, because of it's great, and interesting plot.
It starts out with the weird three sisters talking about meeting Macbeth.
Then it switches to the king talking with important people about the Thane of Cawdor's death.
They decide to name Macbeth the Thane, because of his great leadership in the war.
Then it switches to Macbeth and Banquo, who are traveling. They soon meet the three weird
sisters, who predict Macbeth to be Thane of Cawdor, and then king. Banquo is to be father of
kings. Right after they disappear, Macbeth is named Thane of Cawdor. Shortly afterwards he
murders to achieve place of King. Violence and death ensue.
