“If music be the food of love, play on.” So begins Shakespeare’s famous comedy Twelfth Night, a story about finding love, overcoming adversity, and yellow stockings! Twelfth Night follows the story of Viola, who washes ashore on Illyria, where she disguises herself as a boy in order to serve the handsome Duke Orsino. Comedy ensues as feelings are caught between all the wrong people, identities are mistaken, and our favorite characters must navigate the tumultuous island waters and their love lives. Filmed on location at Coconino Center for the Arts, this full-length play on film will delight—coming to a screen near you!

A Lie of the Mind  is known as “Sam Shepard’s most personal American drama,” set in the gritty American West. Flagstaff’s high desert is the perfect backdrop to tell this raw family drama. The story follows two families connected by the marriage of their children. After a severe episode of domestic abuse, the families’ lives are changed forever, and they must navigate familial dysfunction and mental illness simultaneously. FlagShakes filmed this incredible play to be sure our patrons have a chance to see this production, which closed after its opening weekend in March 2020.

You are cordially invited to Shakespeare’s Birthday Bash! Join us for a garden party featuring food, drinks, entertainment, and the debut and auction of our recent photography series “Rewritten.” Flagstaff Shakespeare Festival collaborated with local Tintype photographer Eric Retterbush to create a dynamic Shakespeare photography series. The series, titled “Rewritten,” features 6 female characters from Shakespeare’s plays, presented in ways that “take back” their stories of tragedy and pain, giving them strength in their femininity. The series features 6 actors/models local to Arizona dressed in elaborate Elizabethan costumes. The tintypes bring a haunting quality to these characters that you do not want to miss.
