Shakespeare at Winedale is a very special experience. Read about the program and the wonderful gift of air conditioning from Houston attorney, Mark Metts and Blue Bell Creameries in Brenham.
The original idea was to have UT Austin English students put on the plays. But the program has evolved to include not only students from other disciplines but also students from colleges and schools throughout the United States, who spend the summer living and working at Winedale. The program expanded internationally in 1998 when a group of former student actors were invited to London to perform at the acclaimed Shakespeares Globe Theatre. Theatrical troupes of current students have returned to London every year since to perform at such venerable venues as the Swan Theatre of the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Orange Tree Theatre in Richmond.
