About the festival:

2018 Michael Chekhov Theatre Festival will run from September 22nd to October 6th 2018. 

In 1939, Russian-born actor Michael Chekhov established the Chekhov Ridgefield School in a Connecticut barn. There, he taught classes and honed the Chekhov Method, an approach to acting that has influenced actors from Yul Brynner to Johnny Depp.

The Michael Chekhov Theatre Festival was created to honor this dramatic innovator and to bring live, professional theatre to Ridgefield, Chekhov’s adopted home.

Our non-profit organization seeks to enhance the cultural landscape of the region and make Ridgefield a destination for compelling professional theatre. Hamilton Clancy, our artistic director, has helped us bring compelling dramatic pieces and high comedy.
