Shakespeare festival cancelled

The Rotary Good Will Shakespeare Festival has been cancelled for this year because of the teachers’ contract negotiation difficulties.

The festival, which has been held in Summerland for the past 11 years, gave students from around British Columbia a chance to work on theatre arts with world-class professionals.

The B.C. Provincial Drama Festival has already been cancelled. The Shakespeare festival, which was to be held in May, depended on a core group of teachers who volunteered their time. Students who have already paid for the participation will get a full refund.
