California Travel Tips

Shaking in the Park

Published on: June 02, 2016


If you think the only shaking going on in California’s community parks this summer comes from rock concerts, then you’ll be surprised. Shakespeare in the Park has arrived. Annual Shakespeare plays are performed in over 30 parks this summer featuring amazing settings ranging from ocean vistas to towering forests.

“The play’s NOT the thing!” If you’re a fan of the line, “The play’s the thing,” from Hamlet, Act 2, scene 2, 603–605, you won’t be hearing it much this summer. This year look for: Othello, Much Ado About Nothing, Cymbeline, Winter’s Tale, Taming of the Shrew, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Titus Andronicus and Twelfth Night.

William Shakespeare died 400 years ago in 1616. Keeping the literary flame going in honor of the greatest writer in the English language to ever have lived are Shakespeare camps and productions for youth in Tahoe, Orinda and Topanga.
