Shakespeare by the Sea announces its 17th season: Hamlet & Midsummer.

We kick off our season on June 12 with the enchanting romantic fairytale A Midsummer Night’s Dream where Puck makes mischief with fairy royalty and human lovers alike, leading them on a merry midsummer night chase. Then one week later on June 19, we serve up a compelling family drama, Hamlet, Prince of Denmark where a young Prince struggles whether 'to be or not to be' in this compelling family drama about a stolen crown.
