The Baltimore Shakespeare Festival, a relative newcomer to the city's cultural scene, may be forced to cancel its coming summer season because it can't raise enough money to continue operations, its directors say.For the past two summers, the festival has presented Shakespearean dramas performed and directed by a professional cast. Throughout the academic year, the festival has taken abridged versions of its productions on the road to public schools throughout Maryland and Delaware.Beginning in June it is scheduled to produce "As You Like It" and, for children, "Winnie-the-Pooh" outdoors at the Cloisters.
