Director for The Servant of Two Masters | Teaching Artist

Beth Gardiner is so excited to be back in Winona this summer after falling in love with Great River Shakespeare Festival while directing A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Based in New York City, Beth is a Co-Founder of Three Day Hangover, a theater company that creates fresh, unexpected, immersive productions of classic plays in bars and other not-usually-theater spaces. With Three Day, Beth has directed adaptations of Hamlet, Twelfth Night, Henry V and Tartuffe. She’s also an Artistic Company Member at Burning Coal Theatre in Raleigh, North Carolina, where she directed the world premiere of Terry Milner’s The Jesus Fund. Regionally, she has worked as a director, assistant director, dramaturg and educator at companies across the country, including Milwaukee Rep, Utah Shakespeare, South Coast Rep, Santa Rosa Summer Rep, Fugitive Kind, Bialystock and Bloom, and Milwaukee Shakespeare. Beth bakes biscuits from scratch at the drop of a hat and is most at home tromping through the woods.
