Costumes galore at Valley Shakespeare’s Halloween event

Dozens attended the event at the Twisted Vine Restaurant in Derby for food, musical skits and dramatic readings. Guests were encouraged to wear costumes.

The Valley Shakespeare Festival offers a free outdoor Shakespeare play in the summer. Last year’s inaugural season took place at Shelton’s Veterans Memorial Park (the Riverwalk). Go to for details.
