The Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre (AST) announces the cancellation of the 2021 summer festival.

Preparation for the summer festival requires many months of planning and the close assemblage of numerous theatrical artists to produce.
“It is with great disappointment that we make this decision, particularly after having to cancel the 2020 season, but the safety of our artists and the audience must always remain our priority. We are, however, looking forward to the future and are particularly excited about the opening of the new $40 million Windgate Fine and Performing Arts facility in 2022, and how the new facility will allow AST to flourish on our campus and in our community.” explains Shauna Meador, Executive Managing Producer of AST and Chair of the Department of Film, Theatre, and Creative Writing.
