Every summer Hampshire Shakespeare Company brings outdoor theater to the Pioneer Valley, as it was done in the Bard's day. This summer we are presenting Henry V from June 26-30 and July 3-7, and The *Annotated* Taming: Or, Out of the Saddle, Into the Dirt, Adapted from Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew with music & lyrics by Old Flame, July 17-21 & 24-28, as well as our Young Company production of Measure for Measure, August 16-18. Our venue is the beautiful lawn of the Massachusetts Renaissance Center, located on the former estate of Winthrop Saltonstall Dakin, with their brick home built in the style of a Renaissance cottage in Shakespeare's Warwickshire nestled in the rolling hills of Amherst as the backdrop.
