|The Arraignment of Paris-Greenshow 2008|
For more entertainment pleasure, the Shakespeare Festival returns its popular Renaissance Dress performers, The Greenshow. This year, the Shakespeare Festival’s Greenshow presents “Pyramus and Thisbe,” adapted from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Student director, Sarah SalernoBecky Madigan returns to the Greenshow after acting in it last year to direct this short, entertaining, and interactive English Renaissance piece.
The Greenshow will perform outside the Performing Arts Center on the Allendale Campus on Thursday, October 4 at 4:30 p.m. for a free performance open to all and will be seen throughout the festival at various times around the Allendale Campus.

The Greenshow will also perform at the annual Grand Valley Renaissance Faire. The faire returns with family-oriented festivities including minstrels, bagpipers, sword-fighting demonstrations, face painting, dancing, and crafts instruction. Vendors will be on hand selling clothes, jewelry, candles, woodcarvings, weavings, and of course, food and drink. There is ample parking, and visitors are welcome to bring picnic supplies.
