The 2019 season
looks up to the challenge of continuing this tradition by showcasing several classic favorites, a modern adaptation, and a historical rarity. The highlight will no doubt feature one of Shakespeare's most revered works, but several other selections are sure to please audiences as well.
The works performed in 2019 will include Twelfth Night directed by Timothy Orr, an intimate indoor performance of As You Like It directed by Carolyn Howarth, and Romeo and Juliet directed by Christopher DuVal.
In addition to those shows, the festival will also showcase two special performances, the first of which is entitled King Charles III. Written by Mike Bartlett and directed by Kevin Rich, King Charles III is a play set in the future that uses Shakespearean verse and imagery to foretell one possible scenario for what lies ahead for a British monarchy in crisis.
Closing out the season is a one-night presentation of one of the rarest pieces of work in the Shakespearean catalog: King John.
The 2019 festival season kicks off on Friday, June 7th and runs through Sunday, August 11th. Tickets are available through the CU Presents website from the following performance dates:
