Good-bye, Breese Stevens Field! We’re moving to Madison College’s Mitby Theater! Madison College will be using an adaptation of “Romeo and Juliet” originally crafted by John Varda, Madison Shakespeare Company co-founder. “Romeo and Juliet” director Miranda Hawk also collaborated on the final adaptation. Madison Shakespeare Company alumnus Mark Huismann (“Brutus” in our inaugural production of “Julius Caesar”) will portray Friar Laurence. Performances are March 6-15, Friday and Saturday evenings at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday matinees at 2 p.m. For online tickets or more information, visit the Mitby Theater Box Office or call (608) 243-4000. Madison Shakespeare Company will not produce a summer play in 2015, but will look forward to our 2016 transition to the rain-free and traffic noise-free Mitby Theater, for which you will not be required to bring your own chair!
---Madison Shakespeare Company co-founder Warren Hansen

Food and Drink
Breese Stevens does have public water fountains but concessions will not be available. Audience members may bring food and drink into the stands, but should avoid bringing rattling bags or other noisy food containers. Trash clean up will be appreciated. Alcohol and glass containers are prohibited.

Food carts will be present on Paterson Street from 5 p.m. before each performance. Specific vendors will be announced later.

Audience Seating - BYOChair!
Audience seating will be located under the covered roof at the west end of the facility. Several cement tiers can accommodate hundreds of portable chairs, WHICH EACH AUDIENCE MEMBER MUST BRING.

Storage Space Sought
We would like to find someone local who has a dry room or basement where we can store costumes props, and some set pieces if space allowed. If you are interested please email/call John Varda. Information on the Contact Us page.
