BEVERLY HILLS—Shakespeare by the Sea returns on Wednesday, July 24 at 7 p.m. in Roxbury Park. The theatre organization is performing at 23 locations for a total of 42 free performances in Los Angeles and Orange County. This summer the two Shakespeare plays they have selected are “Comedy of Errors” and “Henry V.”
The performances started in a park in San Pedro on June 13, with a final performance slated in San Pedro on August 17. “Comedy of Errors” is only performing in Beverly Hills for one night, but it is playing again in Santa Monica on Thursday, August 8 at 7 p.m. and in Venice on July 17 at 7 p.m.. For those in the Los Angeles area, it is possible to see “Henry V” without traveling to Orange County or San Pedro. Attendees can check out the performance on August 3 at 7 p.m. at the Los Encinos State Historic Park in Encino and at Pan Pacific Park in Fairfax on August 11 at 7 p.m.
While the event is free, organizers of Shakespeare by the Sea are asking attendees who are financially capable of contributing to donate on their website, “Free Theatre is NOT free to produce-we need your support today!”
Admission is on a first come first serve basis, prospective attendees can purchase a Golden Ticket, with a $150 donation, which reserves seating for up to six people at a performance of choice. Attendees are invited to bring lawn chairs and picnic food, but they can reserve picnic dining via Bard’s Box, which is sold on the organization’s website.
