Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival

An event every day that begins at 7:30pm, repeating until September 22, 2018
Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival launches its 29th season with a lineup of four play productions and a range of special events.
The Festival opens on the BMO Mainstage with a classical production of Macbeth. Macbeth plays in repertory with the romantic comedy As You Like It, set in Vancouver in the ‘60s, with over 20 classic Beatles songs performed by the cast.
On the Howard Family Stage, it’s Timon of Athens, a study of greed and false friends. Timon alternates with a new adaptation of Lysistrata, the 411 BC play about the first-ever women’s strike.
Notable returning special events include Bard-B-Q & Fireworks, Family Nights, Talkback Tuesdays, Wine Wednesdays and the Exploring Shakespeare Talks.
