SUMMER SHAKESPEARE RETURNS JUNE 10 WITH 2 COMEDIES

A Fun-Filled Season Of Shakespeare!

We're back outdoors, so it must be summer—well, soon anyway. This year, Chesapeake Shakespeare Company is producing what may be Shakespeare's most popular play—A Midsummer Night's Dream. The production will be set as a carnival-like celebration by CSC Artistic Director Ian Gallanar. In addition, both Shakespeare-lovers and Shakespeare-not-so-much-lovers will find The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) an hilarious summer event directed by CSC Associate Director Scott Alan Small.

Tickets are on sale now, and remember, kids 18 and under are admitted free when accompanied by an adult.

There might not be a funnier group of characters than the rude mechanicals from A Midsummer Night's Dream. There might not be a more enchanting notion than fairies entertained by the foibles of humanity. There might not be a more popular play in the history of theatrical comedy than A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Our cast includes CSC Company Members Jose Guzman, David R. Tabish, Greg Burgess, Shannon Listol, Julian Elijah Martinez, Vince Eisenson, Steven Hoochuk, Jamie Jager, and Robby Rose along with many newcomers and familiar CSC faces.

This is a perfect summer outing for the entire family, and with tickets as low as $64 for a family of four, you can't find a better deal for a fun (yet cultural!) event.

37 Plays in 97 Minutes! An irreverent, fast-paced romp through the Bard’s plays, The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged) was London’s longest-running comedy in the West End. Join these madcap men in tights as they weave their wicked way through all of Shakespeare’s Comedies, Histories and Tragedies in one wild ride that will leave you breathless and helpless with laughter.

Scott Graham, Frank B. Moorman and John Miller mix it up in this hilarious spoof. The PFI Historic Park turns into a giant comedy fest as CSC bites the hand that feeds it!
