About the Stratford on the Avenue Theatre Festival
The annual Stratford on the Avenue Theatre Festival is a production of the Stage Left Theatre Company, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization comprised of local individuals dedicated to providing a variety of theatre opportunities to the community and, eventually, hosting educational workshops and children's theatre events.
This outdoor theatre festival is held during the summer at Rotary Park (formerly City Park) in downtown Ludington and features classical play performances by the likes of Shakespeare, Molière, Wild, etc. In 2018, the main stage play was Shakespeare's As You Like It, with a humorous, abridged adaption of Shakespeare's classic called "Macbeth & Sons Auto Sales, LLC" written by Trenton Wahr and Deanna Dibble as the opener. This year's event will be held on Friday, July 26th-Sunday, July 28th AND Friday, August 2nd-Sunday, August 4th. Friday and Saturday performances begin at 7pm and Sunday matinees begin at 2pm.
Each year, Stage Left chooses a different non-profit beneficiary for the festival, with 2018 proceeds going to the Ludington Area Center for the Arts. The 2019 beneficiary will be Habitat for Humanity of Mason County.
