ROMEO + JULIET
June 25 - July 26
Thursday - Sunday at 7:00
NO PERFORMANCE JULY 4
Special Wednesday performance July 22

Adolescent bliss spins out of control in this imaginative staging of the most famous love story ever told. This new adaptation incorporates an original rock score and design that is equal parts fairy tale and punk. A live band and athletic performances create a Romeo and Juliet that explodes off the Griffith Park stage.

MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING
July 30 - August 30
Thursday - Sunday at 7:00

Messina, summer of 1945. We find Don Pedro and his battalion enjoying a much-needed respite in Leonato's bomb-riddled villa. While awaiting the nuptials of Claudio and Hero, Don Pedro and his men amuse themselves by playing Cupid between Beatrice, Hero’s witty and sharp-tongued cousin, and confirmed bachelor-for-life Benedick. As the wine flows, discord emerges, judgment is clouded, and passions are set ablaze by the most powerful intoxicant of all: love.
