Delaware Shakespeare performing in the summer

WILMINGTON — Delaware Shakespeare has crafted a series of three events as it returns to welcoming audiences at Rockwood Park. The 2021 Summer Festival will offer “Midsummer Mix Tape,” “Rosalind x 3” and “Shakespeare Poetry Slam” as it takes place from July 16 to Aug. 1.


Audiences are invited to picnic in the park while enjoying programs that allow for social distancing among performers and audience members alike.


“Midsummer Mix Tape” is a celebration of original music from past (and future) Delaware Shakespeare productions. “Rosalind x 3” explores the iconic lead character from “As You Like It” through three different cultural lenses by three actor/director pairings. “Shakespeare Poetry Slam” features rhythm and word play as spoken word artists share Shakespearean-inspired creations.



All three events will have a running time of between 60 and 75 minutes. Tickets are Pay-What-You-Decide at $10, $20 or $30, with discounts available for multiple-event purchases. Tickets must be purchased online in advance as capacity is currently limited to 100 audience members per evening.
