Our Season

FALL AND WINTER SEASON UPDATE
As a result of the ongoing impact of COVID-19, Shakespeare Dallas regrets to announce the suspension of both its Fall production of Romeo and Juliet and its Winter  production of Twelfth Night. Performances were originally scheduled for September 9 – October 3, 2020 at Samuell-Grand Park, October 8 – October 18, 2020 at The Sound at Cypress Waters and January 8 -17, 2021 at Moody Performance Hall. While we evaluated several options to move forward, our top priority remains the continued well-being of our organization, artists and the communities we serve.
Shakespeare Dallas is currently contacting all members and donors, ticket holders, staff, contractors, partners and stakeholders affected by the suspension. In the meantime, we ask for your support and continued commitment to following state and county guidelines to facilitate a safe reopening of our state.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream

In A Midsummer Night’s Dream, residents of Athens mix with fairies from a local forest, with comic results. In the city, Theseus, Duke of Athens, is to marry Hippolyta, queen of the Amazons.
