Proud sponsors of Nevada Shakespeare Festival

Mar 8, 2024
Western Stage Props is proud to announce our official sponsorship of the Nevada Shakespeare Festival! The NSF is a 501(c)(3) non-profit theater arts organization providing free community performances, in-school programming, workshops, and an annual main-stage production.

The NSF aims to bring Shakespeare to a broader audience, making the Bard's work accessible to long-time aficionados and newcomers alike. "Shakespeare can be intimidating to a lot of young people, but his works deal with topics and themes that are universal," says artistic director Matthew Morgan. "Our goal is to introduce these plays to people who wouldn't usually go to see Shakespeare and to give young people throughout Southern Nevada opportunities to get involved in theater and performing arts."

Morgan serves alongside his wife, managing director Heidi Brucker Morgan and producing director Michael Rice. While the trio considers themselves dedicated Shakespeare nerds, that's not to say that they don't take liberties with the script. "Our goal is to make the work accessible to a modern audience," explains Morgan, "which means incorporating modern topics. Our upcoming adaptation of Titus Andronicus, for example, is done in the style of a grindhouse horror film."

Titus Andronicus runs from March 28th through April 6th at 1600 Wigwam Pkwy, Henderson, NV. Tickets are available through this link.
