Maryland Shakespeare Festival to fill void at Evergreen Museum

The sudden folding of the Baltimore Shakespeare Festival earlier this year does not mean that the Bard's work will not return to the grounds of the Evergreen Museum and Library, where that company under-the-stars productions for 17 years.

The Frederick-based Maryland Shakespeare Festival, an organization founded in 1999, will fill the void this summer, bringing to Evergreen its staging of "As You Like It." Performances will be at 8 p.m. June 29-July 2 and July 6-10.

A pre-show, aimed at making Shakespeare more accessible, especially to children, will be offered each evening at 7:20. Tickets are $10 to $20; four-ticket family packages are $55.
