Rome Shakespeare Festival has joined Makervillage and is creating a pop-up 60-80 seat theatre – The River Arts District Playhouse at​ Makervillage – to present small intimate productions as part of the annual Rome Shakespeare Festival.
The hilarious comedy, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare, abridged ​ is set to open the new River Arts District Playhouse on May 24, 2018.
“Theatre teaches that hard work, adaptation, persistence in the face of failure, and​ collaboration with a team can create a profound experience for an audience,” said Makervillage Founder Tricia Steele, “I believe the proximity to great theatre will inspire greatness in our startup members and even greater creativity in our community.”
Rome Shakespeare Festival has established its headquarters in the Makervillage Creative Hub on North 5th Avenue to be closer to the Town Green and Broad Street. In only three short years, RSF has grown from one show to five, and a staff of three.  This year’s productions will be held at three separate locations from May 24 – June 10, 2018.
