Mission Statement

We are a small group of dedicated performers, designers and volunteers working to bring the work of Shakespeare to our beloved community. We strive to keep costs affordable to ensure Shakespeare's legacy is accesable to everyone.

Description

The Homespun Players united like minded theatre artists over a love for litereature and theatre in the backyards of friends in the Spring of 2013. Since then we have produced site specific theatrical events inspired by the individual locations and world of classical litereature. In 2015 they produced a show called, Grimms (presenting live adaptations of selected Grimms' fairytales) at the Riverside Art Museum which raised money for children's shcolorships. Homespun began Riverside's Shakespeare in the Park Festival downtown at Whitepark in Spring of 2016 with a prodution of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Last year we returned with a rousing production of Hamlet and we will return this April for the very popular comedy, Twelfth Night. We have a lot of fun and love what we do. Hoping to get some help for the days of the festival maintaining the craft services table, ushering our audience, accepting tickets at the gate and various other necessary duties. We provide sandwiches, snacks and plenty of water to all of our volunteers. Hope to meet some of you at the festival! - Stevie Taken, Artistic Director
