The Tennessee Stage Company presents its 31st Summer Shakespeare Festival, now performing at Ijams Nature Center where there is room for the audience to spread out and observe proper social distancing while being able to enjoy the outdoor performances which will feature two of Shakespeare's most renowned plays, the comedy Twelfth Night and the romance of The Tempest. This season is being produced in cooperation with Ijams Nature Center.
Twelfth Night opens the festival on July 8th and continues through August 8th alternating performances with The Tempest. There is an indoor space at Ijams where performances will move in case of rain. In order to be prepared for the ever-changing landscape of 2021, we will play this season in the open field in front of the Visitors Center at Ijams.
The Tennessee Stage Company encourages our audience to spend an evening at Ijams Nature Center. Walk the splendor of the trails, shop in the gift shop, have dinner at the food trucks, see the show and enjoy the beverages from the Beer Garden. Come early and sample the many pleasures to be found at Ijams Nature Center.
