Shakespeare Street Theatre

Shakespeare Street Theatre is a voluntary theatre group dedicated to performing the works of William Shakespeare.

Located amongst the artistic community of Peterborough and Northumberland County, the group presents plays during the summer festival season and sonnet readings during the wintertime. Taking traditional Shakespearean street theatre to the people can be a daunting task, but Shakespeare Street Theatre embraces the opportunity to give voluntary performers, both young and adult, the chance to experience the joys of participating in a traditional street theatre production.

The Shakespeare Street Theatre group was started in 2009 by founder Paula Worley, and is made possible by the wonderful volunteer performers that contribute their time and skills to creating traditional Shakespearean style street theatre. Bringing her own unique directing style to her productions, and her skills as an artist to her scenery, masks and costumes, Shakespeare Street Theatre has gradually grown with popularity. Translating text into easily understood and enjoyed work, the group has gradually grown, but encourages new actors, dancers, singers, musicians and back-stage crew every year to come along and join the group.
