Out of the Garden From Our Hearts to Your Home



We were so excited to return to the Garden at Bjorklunden this summer. We even added a third production to our list of offerings in order to give you more options! But, then, you know what happened.

Rather than close our doors, we regrouped and decided to go virtual! Learning curve? You bet! Exciting? You bet!

In addition to our first virtual offering, J. M Barrie’s Rosalind (September 2-13), here is what else is in store for 2020:


Monday, September 21st, 8 a.m. Our Online Silent Auction opens for bidding. All bidding will close at 8:30 p.m. on September 26th, so bid early, bid often! To view auction items, go to dsgala.givesmart.com.

Saturday, September 26th, 6 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. – The virtual Gala event! Please join us as we reflect on the past, review the present, and look to the future! The virtual gala will be streamed from our Gala website to your home. Go to dsgala.givesmart.com.

Shakespeare’s Plays Will Return to a Magical Door County Garden

From June – August, the finest professional actors, directors, designers and musicians from around the country come together to share classic and timeless plays with Door County audiences. 

The productions unfold before your eyes. As a member of the audience, you are up close and personal to the action. As dusk falls over the course of the evening, you may take on the role of a confidante or a voyeur. By the end of the evening, when the stars are out and the actors take their final bow, you will feel as though you have come to know this talented ensemble of players. Such is the magic of live theatre, when performed in an outdoor setting so enchanting that many in attendance come back year after year since Door Shakespeare’s inception in 1995.

A number of Door Shakespeare performances feature pre-show lectures and family activities, including Will In The Woods and Shake It Up Saturdays, as well as our very popular Wine Nights. Refreshments are available at every performance. There is also our annual gala on August 2.

In addition to our main-stage productions, Door Shakespeare’s youth theatre program, Camp Will, offers three one-week sessions (Monday – Friday) led by members of our Acting Company. Over the course of five days, students are introduced to the world, stories and characters of William Shakespeare through a combination of theatre games, exercises, activities, and word play. The week culminates in a sharing of the fruits of their labor – on the same stage where the productions are presented.

Door Shakespeare

Good afternoon everyone! Door Shakespeare's 25th Anniversary (virtual) Gala is only two days away, but our SILENT AUCTION is up and running. BID NOW!

BID NOW on this stunning ART GLASS VASE, by artist David Ensign.

"I used spots of an opaque, reducing frit* on the outside with aventurine old gold below the surface to create a combination that sparkles in bright light and communicates a simple statement of form in shadow." ~ David Ensign

This piece uses extra material in the base to raise the circular volume up into the air that fills it, while the hole in its center emphasizes its shape and helps anchor it in space. This vase stands 9 7/8" tall and is 8" at its widest point.

David studied art and graphic design as an undergraduate at Yale University, and glass at San Francisco State University, Pilchuck Glass School, Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, and Public Glass in San Francisco. In 2012 he won the award for Best Hot Glass at Public Glass's Artist and Artisans Benefit Auction. David is Door Shakespeare's Graphic Designer and the brother of Managing Director, Amy Ensign.

*Frit is crushed glass often melted onto other glass to produce patterns and color

The ART GLASS VASE has a current bid of $122, with a Fair Market Value of $220.
