Pistarckle Presents Shakespeare and Renaissance Faire

April 18, 2007 – Pistarckle Theater will have its first annual Shakespeare Festival followed by a Renaissance Faire from 2-8 p.m., on Friday, May 4, at Tillett Gardens.
The event, produced by Betsy Summers and Bethany Burgess-Smith, will be fun for the whole family and is free.
