If you’ve seen any of the amazing shows at Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival this summer — Chris Edwards’ madcap “Around the World in 80 Days,” Kurt Rhoads’ freak-show take on “The Comedy of Errors” or Terry O’Brien’s eye-opening and heartfelt “Hamlet” — you’ve likely seen members of the festival’s apprentice corps.
One night per summer, the apprentice company takes over the tent to present a show of their own.
Tonight is that one-night-only event, and “Romeo & Juliet” is the play, directed by festival regular Ryan Quinn, a memorable Passepartout in “80 Days” and a heart-sick Laertes in “Hamlet. Grounds open at 5 p.m. for picnicking before the 7 p.m. curtain. There’s a pre-show wine-tasting featuring Ivana Trump’s new wine “Legends.”
At Boscobel, Route 9D, Garrison. $30; $15 students. 845-265-9575. hvshakespeare.org
