Last year, Island Shakespeare Festival and Whidbey Island Center for the Arts came together to create a space where our companies could explore what it means to be human and continue to figure out what it means to do theatre at this moment in the world. The culmination of that journey was a 2-weekend event featuring three incredible solo theatre shows. 

We are excited to announce that the Whidbey Repertory Festival is returning for its second annual 2-weekend event this March with five new shows.  

 

So, mark your calendars, gather your friends, and make sure to grab your tickets for this unforgettable event. We can’t wait to see you there!
