THE PLAYS


 

AS YOU LIKE IT

Shakespeare’s sparkling comedy about love, family and identity is full of wit, music and gender-bending fun. The rightful duke and his supporters have been banished, while his impulsive daughter Rosalind remains at the mercy of the oppressive new regime. Comic twists and turns abound when Rosalind, disguised as a boy, flees the court to seek her father in the mysterious Forest of Arden. Her journey of self-discovery brings her face to face with Orlando, the man she loves.

 
 

JULIUS CAESAR

In this sensational political thriller, Shakespeare explores the tension between private loyalties and the public good, and unflinchingly questions the price of freedom. Caesar is determined to crown himself as Rome’s first emperor, but a few senators, led by the idealistic, intellectual Brutus and his manipulative, rebellious friend Cassius, are prepared to sacrifice everything to liberate their country...but instead of being greeted as liberators, they are met with civil war.

 
 

KIDS & THE CLASSICS

“Kids & the Classics” is the companion piece to Hip to Hip’s program of "Free Shakespeare in the Park.” This free 45-minute interactive workshop is offered one hour before every performance, and is designed for children ages 4 to 14. It gives children a chance to interact with the text by previewing the characters and situations, creating links between the text and their own lives through theatre games, and close reading of text.

All performances are free and open to the public.
Running time: 90 minutes.
Fun for the whole family.
Bring a blanket or low chair and picnic fare
and enjoy a Shakespeare play in the open air.
