This is the fifth year of the festival at Rivendale park in Towsley Canyon.
To mark the occasion, the Santa Clarita Shakespeare Festival is adding a new celebration to their opening night gala. The Court of the Lord Chamberlain honors those that have made a significant contribution to the arts in Santa Clarita, support of the Shakespeare Festival, or support of the growing LA SummerFest.
This year’s inductees, and the first to be inducted into the Court of the Lord Chamberlain, are: Los Angeles County Supervisor, Fifth District Michael Antonovich and Laurene Weste, the Mayor of Santa Clarita.
The Lord Chamberlain was responsible for the patronage of the court. Shakespeare was supported by the court, and for a while wrote exclusively for the company of players named The Lord Chamberlain’s Men.
The induction will take place during the opening night gala for the LA SummerFest, Friday July 11.
