Houston Shakespeare Fest

.Houston Shakespeare Festival is taking place at Miller Outdoor Theatre from July 27th to August 5th.

All performances are free with open seating on the hill. If you’d like to sit in the covered seating area, free tickets are available (4 per person over age 16 while they last) at the box office the day of the performance between the hours of 10:30am and 1pm. If there are remaining tickets, the box office will open one hour before the show to distribute those that are left.

In Hamlet “a young prince is summoned back from his university studies to find his world turned inside out, with his mother re-married to his uncle and a ghost haunting the battlements. Unearthing the truth in a court of corruption takes a live-or-die kind of courage – does Hamlet have it?”

The Comedy of Errors is “a riotous farce of mistaken identity! Double trouble comes to the port city of Ephesus when two sets of twins, separated as infants, pop up, causing mayhem and mirth. Laughs fly and surprises abound in Shakespeare’s earliest comedy.”
