The Bard’s Ball is coming soon! Join us for a “Swashbuckling Soiree & The Bard’s Ball” from 5 to 7 p.m. on Saturday, June 20.
The Island Shakespeare Festival is moving to our new home at 5476 Maxwelton in Langley, exactly two and one-half minutes from the center of town!
The Mistress & Master of revels will spin a play of sorts, and the mystery and fun will weave between jugglers, fairies, sword fights and falconers. “Lords and Ladies” can peruse the Treasure Chest, sit for a henna tattoo by Drew Christie or choose a sonnet for their true love to be read by a Shakespearean actor. Costumes for the occasion are encouraged but not required, and plenty of props are available if the spirit moves you.
Capture the evening’s enjoyment with sitting portrait photography by Michael Stadler.
Enjoy culinary delights catered by Cultivar Catering Vince Nattress.
Music for the evening will bey by 3 Cent Stamp featuring Gloria Ferry-Brennan, Levi Burkle & James Hinkley & Wandering Minstrels Debbie Zick & Brian Kenney.
