Quest Shakespearean Theatre's, The Winter's Tale was performed on February 19-21, 2015, at Living Hope Church in Williston, VT. The play raised $2000 for Care Net and was considered by some to be Quest's best performance to date. This is no surprise as the work began on it in late July of 2014 giving the troupe nearly seven months to perfect their show. The Winter's Tale was Quest Theatre's first attempt at a non-comedic play.
Michael Manion co-directed the play with Tami Brennan and Jessica Danis was the producer.

A Midsummer Night's Dream was performed on the 27th, 28th, and 29th of March, 2014 at Living Hope Church in Williston, VT. The rehearsals started in October of 2013. After a few practices the actors soon began to realize the difference between this comedy and Much Ado About Nothing. While the previous play's comedy had been based around humorous dialogue, the comedy of A Midsummer Night's Dream relied more on the characters' actions which presented some challenges. The show raised $1900 for Care Net. Once again, it was directed by Tami Brennan and produced by Mary Diesing.
