23rd June to 21st July

As You Like it

By William Shakespeare, Directed by Jessica Stone
The 2019 Shakespeare Festival kicks off with the Bard’s fabulously charming romantic comedy, whose heroine is one of his 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.
At The Old Globe's  Lowell Davies Festival Theatre.
The Old Globe is located in Balboa Park, San Diego’s cultural treasure.  Our theatres are located off of El Prado between the San Diego Museum of Art and the Museum of Man. Box Office phone: (619) 234-5623     EMAIL: Tickets@TheOldGlobe.org

23rd June to 2nd Sept
A Midsummer Night's Dream

Directed by Willow Geer
The natural beauty of our Topanga wilderness transforms once again into an enchanted forest peopled by lovers and fairies. Comic misadventures, mistaken identities, and unrequited love join together to create the Bard’s most magical romp. The perfect experience to introduce your family to the world of Shakespeare.
