14th Annual Vento Shakespeare Festival April 2019

The 14th Annual 2019 Annual Vento Shakespeare Festival was once again held in 2019 at the Nisky Moravian Church, overseen by Shakespearean scholar Pamela New, with the assistance of Emcee Jada Lark. Sponsors included the Vento Charitable Trust, Auven Therapeutics, Bolongo Bay Beach Resort, Emerald Beach Hotel, and the Virgin Islands Council on the Arts. 

Each year, students and faculty from St. Thomas and St. Croix gather at the Nisky Center Moravian Church to recreate scenes from some of William Shakespeare’s most memorable plays. The tremendous talent these children displayed at the 2019 event warranted several awards.
