Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival

Presented By: Bard on the Beach


Every June through September, Bard on the Beach professional Shakespeare Festival brings to life the magic of Shakespeare’s great plays. The Festival site is located on the waterfront in Vancouver’s Vanier Park, adjacent to the downtown core.

The 28th Bard season, running from June 1 to September 23, 2017, features four Shakespeare plays plus a short-run contemporary drama; together they will take audiences from the Renaissance to modern-day Venice and Vancouver.

The stylish romantic comedy Much Ado About Nothing, directed by John Murphy, opens the season on the BMO Mainstage. It plays in repertory with a classic staging of The Winter’s Tale, a moving and magical drama directed by Dean Paul Gibson.

On the Howard Family Stage, the thought-provoking classic, The Merchant of Venice, (director, Nigel Shawn Williams), alternates with a light-hearted romantic drama, The Two Gentlemen of Verona (director, Scott Bellis).
