Since being formed in early 2003, the Victoria Shakespeare Society (VSS) has produced quality works of theatre, primarily, but not limited to, the works of William Shakespeare and our “Shakespeare in the Summer” festival. The Victoria Shakespeare Society returns and they are excited to present As You Like It and Much A Do About Nothing.
During the first two years, “Shakespeare in the Summer” experimented with different downtown venues. Then, in 2005, we found a home at our current outdoor location on the beautiful Camosun College Lansdowne Campus. Since their initial 2003 show in Centennial Square, audiences have increased from 500, to 1628 people per year. All in all, over 5,500 patrons have attended the Society’s main stage productions, making it one of the fastest growing summer events in Victoria.
The Society also takes an active interest in community involvement. They have a long-standing tradition of donating the proceeds of their preview night shows to the Camosun College Foundation. The Foundation maintains a fund that is paid out as an award to a worthy Camosun College English student for exceptional achievement. The Society is always proud to be able to support students of the bard in their quest to master the English language. Who knows where the next Shakespeare will be found?
Come out on a summer evening and see why the Victoria Shakespeare Society expects to be busy for years to come.
