"All the world’s a stage,
And all the men and women merely players."

The Old Globe's 2019 Shakespeare Festival kicks off with the Bard’s fabulously charming romantic comedy, "As You Like It," featuring a heroine who is considered one of Shakespeare's most remarkable creations.

The magical forest of Arden is the play’s famous setting, where a gallery of eccentric characters comes together to find love, fortune, redemption ... and themselves. Banished from the court by her deceitful and treacherous uncle, Rosalind disguises herself as a boy, not knowing that the man she loves, also on the run, is behind the next tree.

Bucolic Balboa Park is the ideal spot for Shakespeare’s enticing tale of mistaken identity, heartfelt romance, and the endearing fumbles and foibles of love.

The show runs June 16 through July 21, 2019. For additional details or to buy tickets by phone call (619) 234-5623.

Shakespeare in the Garden is a series of informal presentations that enhance the Summer Shakespeare Festival experience. These seminars feature members of the Festival creative team and take place in the Craig Noel Garden before each performance. The presentations are free; no reservations necessary. Catch one every night at 7 p.m. from Tuesday, June 25 through Saturday, June 29.

Dates and times of events are subject to change without notice. Always check the event organizer's website for the most updated schedule before attending.
