Shakespeare company begins UVM partnership

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. - The Shakespeare Company brought performing arts to the masses through a new partnership with the University of Vermont.

The company wrapped up it's latest performance -- A Midsummer Night's Dream -- this weekend. The play took place at different locations throughout the state, including UVM's Royall Tyler Theatre. The company says the partnership has given students real world theatre experience.

"This partnership -- we're hoping that we can continue it. We're hoping that the community gets behind it. There was a Shakespeare Festival here for many decades and we're trying to restart it. We want to create a nationally recognized destination Shakespeare festival for the people of Vermont, " said Jena Necrason, the Vt. Shakespeare Company's Artistic Director.

The company hopes to continue it's partnership with UVM next year.
