Festival 56 Kicks Off Its11th Season

By Princeton Tourism Bureau | Jun 05, 2014

Festival 56 will open its 11th season at 7:30 p.m. on June 20 with the 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, the first of three Broadway musicals offered through the summer.

During the month of July the festival will once again offer free Shakespeare in Princeton’s Soldiers and Sailors Park.  This year’s selection is the comedy, As You Like It, which will be performed in the park on Wednesday and Sunday evenings at 7:30 p.m. (July 6-July 27).  No tickets are required; lawn chairs are recommended.

For the first time, Festival 56 is offering a new Broadway Pass (a ticket package just for the three musicals), along with the usual summer or full season subscriptions (the latter includes three fall plays as well).  This year the Preview Cabaret. (7:30 p.m., June 14 at the Grace) is included in subscription packages. This special event showcases the musical talents of the summer’s company of actors.

For further information and to purchase tickets, visit www.festival56.com, call 815-879-5656, ext. 11, or stop by the Festival 56 Box Office at the Grace. The Box Office is open noon to 5 p.m., Monday through Saturday, and an hour before each performance.
