HUDSON VALLEY SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL'S SO PLEASE YOU
Conceived and Directed by Zachary Fine
Featuring the HVSF Conservatory Company
Bring the kids to this comical-tragical, family-friendly production!
In celebration of Shakespeare's 400 year legacy, this family-friendly comedy tells the story of a servant named Dennis who appears only once in Shakespeare's As You Like It, to announce that, “so please you,” there is a wrestler at the door! Inspired by one moment of mischief, HVSF’s Conservatory Company has created a “tragical-comical, comical-tragical” tale of Dennis the servant, one of Shakespeare’s (almost) silent heroes. Rejoice in the classic art of clowning in this delightful comedy which will showcase text from many of your favorite Shakespeare plays, in an homage to the life and dreams of a struggling Shakespearean actor.

If you're traveling by train from NYC, we suggest you take the 11:51am Harlem line train departing from Grand Central Station for Southeast. Brewster is the second-to-last stop, and you'll need to be in one of the first four cars to exit. You'll arrive in Brewster by about 1:15pm. Cabs are readily available right outside the Brewster train station to take you to the farm. In the event that you want to call a cab we recommend:
Southeast Taxi: 845-519-0155
Orbe’s Taxi: 845-278-7200
SPACE on Ryder Farm does our very best to ensure that events take place on the date that they are scheduled. In the event that we are forced to cancel an event due to weather, the alternative date will be listed. SPACE will make every effort to inform guests at least 24 hours in advance of cancellation. Refunds will only be issued in the event that an event is cancelled with less than 24 hour notice.
