Shoreline Arts Alliance is dedicated to bringing quality free theatre to the Guilford Green each summer. However, Shoreline Arts Alliance will be taking a break from Shakespeare on the Shoreline for 2019.
According to the Wall Street Journal, “Shakespeare on the Shoreline is the most popular and well recognized cultural mainstay of the community, drawing crowds from all over the area and beyond with its engaging, entertaining and educational performances.”
See what the community had to say about the 2018 performance below:

"A terrific performance of 'Hamlet' on the Guilford Green earned high praise!"- Bob D.
