Shakespeare by the Sea has 5 More Weeks of ADMISSION FREE Performances left in our jam-packed schedule!

WEEK 2 OF OUR TOUR: This Wednesday, we’re heading north and east to Schabarum Park in Rowland Heights, spending Thursday at Garfield Park in South Pasadena,  then traveling to the southern end of the 110 freeway  on Friday to the Marine Mammal Care Center in San Pedro, and ending the weekend at Cesar Chavez Park in Long Beach with back to back performances of both shows on Saturday and Sunday.  We encourage you to come early to watch us set up the set, eat a picnic, and enjoy the open air in one of these fabulously beautiful parks.
