In partnership with the Virginia Arts Festival, Jamestown Settlement presents a special performance featuring The HandleBards from 3:30 to 5 p.m. on Saturday, May 25. This internationally renowned British troupe specializing in outdoor theatre will play all the parts of Shakespeare’s “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” using the props and costumes they’ve carried on their bikes just for this occasion. You’ll never think of Shakespeare the same way again!

Complimentary water will be provided, with additional food and drink available for purchase in the museum cafe. Coolers, food and outside beverages are not permitted.
