For the 28th year, the Texas Shakespeare Festival in Kilgore shines once again. With so much past experience, the festival operates like a well-oiled machine, producing an extraordinary level of polished professionalism. The 92-member company from 28 states and three foreign countries sparkles like a precious jewel. The stage in the Van Cliburn auditorium radiates brilliance with glowing performances in dazzling costumes on glitzy sets.



The actors playing two sets of twins in “Comedy of Errors” were so convincing, I actually believed there were four playing the parts instead of two. The hilarity spills over into the comedy “The Foreigner” where Jason Richards delivers a glittering tour de force.



The unconventional set in “A Winter’s Tale” almost outshines the acting and “Camelot” remains the luminescent city that tugs at our heartstrings. There is also a children’s play, “The Enchanted Forest.”



The TSF performances are not unobtainable gems gleaming in the distance. They are in your neighborhood. Reach for those diamonds now -- you won’t be sorry.



The Texas Shakespeare Festival runs through July 28. Please visit http://www.texasshakespeare.com or call the box office at (903) 983-8601.
