“All the world’s a stage!”

Have you ever imagined a cooking show starring Titus Andronicus? Or that the Two Gentlemen of Verona are two-stepping line dancers? Or that Cleopatra has some mad video game skills?

If you thought you knew Shakespeare, think again!

Over the course of one magical weekend, dozens of actors from throughout the community—neighbors, friends, and young and old alike—take to the stage with their own unique spin on some of Shakespeare’s most beloved works. Two different performances, each offering a series of ten-minute scenes, are sure to inspire and delight the entire family.

Join us, and you’ll discover why ShakeScenes continues to be one of our most popular events!

Another performance will be held on Saturday, July 20, at 2:00 p.m.

All performances are free of charge. To reserve seats, visit
