The 18th Annual Columbia High School Shakespeare Festival is a little different this year. For the previous 17 years, different elements of the Bard’s work have been explored on stage in a day-long celebration. There are many traditions, with popular contests such as “Shakespeare or Hip Hop” and “Shakespeare or Batman.” The annual balloon party on the morning of the festival has always been a hit. The Shakespeare Festival has generally taken place each April and is open to the public.

But due to coronavirus, this year’s Festival will be virtual.

Columbia High School teacher and Shakespeare Festival organizer Stephen MacPherson is confident the show can go on. This year, MacPherson requests students, alumni and community members create and submit scenes while observing social distancing rules. The deadline for submissions is May 22nd.
