Written by William Shakespeare
Directed by Ellen Geer

June 11th – October 2nd

Shakespeare’s buoyant comedy, re-set in 1950s small-town America to a score of rockin’ ’50s tunes. When opportunistic schemer and womanizer John Falstaff blows into town on his Harley and tries to woo two wealthy women at once, the townspeople gleefully plot his comeuppance. Things might seem picture perfect in “Small Town U.S.A”… but just underneath the surface, the fight for women’s rights has begun in full force.

A prologue discussion with the cast will take place before the show at 6:30pm on 8/7. Pay What You Will ticket pricing is available (cash only at the door) on 7/15.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Written by William Shakespeare

June 12th – October 1st

Theatricum returns with its signature production, an annual event infusing Shakespeare’s beautiful language with music and song to heighten the pleasure. The most magical outdoor setting in Los Angeles is once again transformed into an enchanted forest inhabited by lovers both fairy and human. Shakespeare conjures a world of wonder, magic and romance where comical misunderstandings and the pain of unrequited love are resolved, and all is reconciled through midsummer night revelries and the enduring power of nature.

A prologue discussion with the cast will take place before the show at 6:30pm on 9/10. Pay What You Will ticket pricing is available (cash only at the door) on 7/22.
