With just a handful of shows left in its 2023 season, the Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival has announced its 2024 line-up, including Twelfth Night and Hamlet on its BMO Mainstage and The Comedy of Errors and Measure for Measure on the Howard Family Stage.
With comedy, music, romance, and drama, there’s something for everyone, whether they’re a committed Shakespeare fan or have never been to the theatre before. – Christopher Gaze
“With comedy, music, romance, and drama, there’s something for everyone, whether they’re a committed Shakespeare fan or have never been to the theatre before,” says founding artistic director Christopher Gaze. “We’re thrilled to work with some of Canada’s finest theatre creators to present a unique and diverse season that will make you laugh, think, and move you deeply, all in equal parts.”
On the BMO Mainstage, director Diana Donnelly celebrates the topsy-turvy world of Twelfth Night, packed with romance and laughs, adventure and self-discovery, set to original music by Vancouver singer-songwriter Veda Hille. It will play in repertory with Shakespeare’s classic tale of vengeance, love, and loss, Hamlet, adapted and directed by Stephen Drover.
On the Howard Family Stage, The Comedy of Errors, directed by Rebecca Northan, who conceived and directed this year’s Goblin:Macbeth, joins an irreverent, footloose Measure for Measure, adapted and directed by Governor General’s Award nominee Jivesh Parasram.
Season ticket packs to the Festival’s 2024 season are now on sale, with general tickets going on sale in 2024. Visit bardonthebeach.org for more information.
