The live performances of Hillcrest Theatre's Richard II were canceled just days before they were to occur in March of 2020. Even though we couldn't bring in an audience, the show was filmed this summer before the students went off to their various colleges and universities. Recorded and edited by Panscape Pictures, the show is now being made available for you to watch!
BUT WAIT. THERE'S MORE!
Our popular pre-show orientation series returns. Watch the video below before experiencing "Richard II." In the orientation, director Joshua Long gives tips and hints to help you get more out of Shakespeare's famous text and this unique adaptation of it. He also goes over historical context to help you understand the story, fun facts, and hidden motifs in the script and directing. A must-watch before viewing the full production.
