The mischievous magic of moviedom sparkles in this hilarious comic romp.

Shakespeare in Hollywood will be staged by the Milford Area Players for two weekends, July 13 through 22, with shows on Fridays and Saturdays at 8 pm and Sundays at 2 pm. General admission tickets are $12 for adults, $7 for seniors (60+) and students. Advance tickets are available at Toadstool Bookshop and online at Tickets are also available at the door.
