Shakespeare's Songs


York Shakespeare Project celebrates 22 years!

  • Creative Centre Auditorium - YSJ University

About the Show

21st April, 7:30pm - Creative Centre Auditorium, York St John £5 Standard £5 Pass It On! (purchase a ticket for someone who otherwise would be unable to attend this event) Our Shakespeare & Community Day finishes with an evening concert of music from the YSP's 20 year history of producing the entire Shakespeare canon. The York Shakespeare Project was set up in 2001 with the aim of performing all the Bard’s plays. That initial mission was completed in 2022 and the project is now tackling the entire canon again – with The Taming of the Shrew featuring in the present Festival. Shakespeare’s Songs is a relaxed entertainment presenting an hour of music from past YSP productions of As You Like It (2008), Twelfth Night (2014), The Tempest (2023) and more. This revival of the successful 2023 show adds some new songs – from Love’s Labours Lost, Cymbeline and The Winter’s Tale – and sets the music in the context of the plays.
