2024 Upstate Shakespeare Festival: Loves Labour's Lost

The 28th Annual Upstate Shakespeare Festival features LOVES LABOUR’S LOST premiering on May 23rd until June 16th, 2024.  HENRY IV (PARTS I & II) will open on July 5th and run through July 28th, 2024.

The Upstate Shakespeare Festival takes place each summer. One show runs from May to June and another from June to July. Shows begin at 7:00pm (arrive early to get a spot!) and run Thursday through Sunday each week during the run of shows.

Patrons can bring lawn chairs, blankets, and even food for a picnic. Alcohol is allowed in clear, plastic cups with a valid ID and purchase of a wristband ($1, cash only).

Each show is briskly delivered in two hours. Usually, their actors dress in contemporary costumes to bring out the timelessness of Shakespeare’s themes.

This program is funded in part by the Metropolitan Arts Council.
