Shakespeare Festival St Louis - Green Show

GREEN SHOW

The Green Show is traditionally a prelude to an evening’s main performance and serves as a means of preparing the audience for that night’s main offerings, and creates an environment for pre show picnickers to enjoy light entertainment while breaking bread with family and friends. Each night beginning at 6:30 PM, entertainment is performed throughout the Glen. During the nights of Double Feature performances, there will be a Green Show from 7:15 – 8:15 PM.


Intro to the Show

Performed by members of the Shakespeare Squad, the Festival’s training program for young actors, the Green Show features a 20-minute adaptation of the evening’s mainstage production that introduces the performance’s characters and plot. The Green Show stage is located in the Lobby, performances are schedules at 6:30 PM and again at 7:25 PM nightly.

Backstage Tour

Free backstage tours begin nightly at 6:30 PM and last approximately 20 minutes. Get a behind-the-scenes view of the Festival, chat with stage crew, get a peek in the sound/lighting tent and maybe visit with an actor preparing for the performance. School and community groups can arrange group tours at 5:30 PM – email rwolownik@sfstl.com to set up your group tour.

Family Art Activities

Families with children ages two and up can join us for royal crafts. Children may choose from a variety of crafts, such as making crowns and capes, creating musical instruments, or constructing Shakespearean puppets. Children participating in the activities must be accompanied by an adult.


Featured Entertainers

From 6:45 PM to 7:45 PM on select nights, look for Juggling Jeff, Trovare di Spada, and Oh My Gosh Josh performing throughout the Glen and on the hilltop.

Green Show Stage

Each night at 7 PM musicians, jugglers, singers, crafts artisans, and performers including Dance Caledonia, St. Louis Osuwa Taiko, Fox PACF, and The Muny Kids will take the stage.

Roving Entertainment

Roving performers include MOYO, Circus Kaput, and the St. Louis Madrigal Consort. The Shakespeare Squad will return with the Will of Fortune, performing monologues, scenes, and sonnets from whichever play the wheel lands on.


Chess

The World Chess Hall of Fame will be joining us in the park May 24 and 31, and June 12 and 14 with a life-sized game of chess. Explore one of the world’s oldest and most popular activities with challenging chess-related games, puzzles and demonstrations.
