FSU/Asolo Conservatory, Selby Gardens Partner For More Shakespeare



The FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training has announced that its “Shakespeare in the Gardens” series will return to the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in April 2018, following a sold-out production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream in 2017. This will be the first year of a new three-year partnership between the FSU/Asolo Conservatory for Actor Training and the Marie Selby Botanical Gardens, with annual “Shakespeare in the Gardens” productions planned through 2020. This partnership is funded in part by a $60,000 grant from the Charles & Margery Barancik Foundation. The inaugural “Shakespeare in the Gardens” production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream was staged in April 2017 and seen by over 2,900 patrons—many of whom had never before attended a FSU/Asolo Conservatory production. The Selby Gardens also invited a noticeably different audience demographic, showing increases in younger patrons and families. The Conservatory will open the next “Shakespeare in the Gardens” production—Much Ado About Nothing—on April 18, 2018. Tickets are currently available.
