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!
