The Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company

The Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company seeks to explore the original theatrical practices of the acting companies of Shakespeare's time; to provide high quality productions of works by Shakespeare and his contemporaries to regional theatre audiences; to provide local actors, directors, and stage managers the opportunity to work with these wonderful scripts and to receive training in an original practice approach to Shakespeare's plays; and to maintain an organizational philosophy in which theatre practitioners participate in the administration of the company on a regular basis.

Plans are in place for our 2017 Rose season!

Thank you so much for your support of the Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company's 2017 Rose Theater season.  We have recently met with our friends at Blue Lake Public Radio to begin the planning for this year's productions.  We will be performing at the Rose on June 3 and August 26.  Our August production will be Shakespeare's Julius Caesar.  For the June show, we are still tossing around some titles, and we hope to have settled on a play by the end of this month.  Please mark your calendars for these exciting events.

In addition to these public performances in the Rose, we will also be partnering with the Blue Lake Fine Arts Camp to offer their first ever Adult Shakespeare Camp, a three-day camp that will allow anyone with an interest and passion for Shakespeare to get on the Rose stage and learn about the history of Shakespearean performance with our company's actors.  This camp will take place in late July.

We are grateful to our audiences for all you do to help with our work of bringing high quality theatre to our region!

Dates Set for Lake Effect Fringe Festival 2016

Thank you to all of the supporters of the Lake Effect Fringe Festival.  Our organizing committee is hard at work on the 2016 festival, and we have already set the dates.  The 2016 LEFF will run at the Dog Story Theater in Grand Rapids from February 4 through February 28.  GEM Theatrics, the Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company, and Stark Turn Players will all be back with exciting productions.  We are also researching the possibility of making Monday nights at the festival improv nights, with several regional improv groups making appearances.  We will open applications for other festival participants in the later summer or early fall.  We are also seeking to expand our organizing committee -- the festival has grown so much in just 3 short years that we really need some more folks actively working on the planning and publicity.

We will continue to send out reports updating the plans for LEFF 2016.  Thanks to all of you who have been supporters of this project, and of local theatre in Michigan!

Lake Effect Fringe Festival 2015

Thanks to all of you who supported this year's Lake Effect Fringe Festival, which took place at the Dog Story Theater from February 6-March 1.  This year's festival featured performances by Alea Iacta Est, GEM Theatrics, No Outlet Improv Team, the Pigeon Creek Shakespeare Company, Stark Turn Players, and Theatre 616.  Many evening's performances were sold out.  The festival featured the work of over 50 local theatre artists, including actors, directors, playwrights, and technicians.

The Lake Effect Fringe Festival would also like to recognize the work of LEFF Production Manager Cassandra Sandros and her assistant Samara Woolfolk, who kept the festival performances running smoothly.  The box office staff of the Dog Story Theater were also instrumental in the operation of this year's festival.  The festival reached close to 600 audience members over its 14 performances.

We are already at work on planning next year's festival, and we are hoping to get more local theatre groups involved in the planning process.  Any donations that continue to be made to this project will go towards the funding of the 2016 festival.  Thank you again for your support of this collaboration that highlights the variety of outstanding theatrical performance happening in West Michigan.
