Deposit time for the Shakespeare Festival in Ashland

July 7 to July 10, 2011

As we mentioned last month, this year's Ashland trip to see the Shakespeare Festival promises to be another solid (and popular) one -- and the cost will be the same as 2010.

This year's productions at the Ashland Shakespeare Festival include the Bard's classics Henry IV, Part 2, Julius Caesar, Measure for Measure and Love’s Labours Lost. Contemporary plays will include August: Osage County, Moliere’s Imaginary Invalid and Gilbert and Sullivan's Pirates of Penzance.
