Shakespeare Comes to the Valley
The first-ever free outdoor Shakespeare production in the Valley, aptly titled Valley Shakespeare Festival, had a successful showing during a weekend in July 2007 at Shelton’s Veterans Memorial Park.
The first production was made possible with a grant from the Shelton Congregational Church Fund and VCF’s unrestricted funds. For the inaugural show, Valley Shakespeare presented “A Comedy of Errors” to more than 400 audience members.
Valley Shakespeare Festival was founded by New York actor and Shelton native, Tom Simonetti.
