Enjoy Shakespeare Under the Stars at USJ
Pericles, Prince of Tyre 2018
Each year Capital Classics brings outdoor Shakespeare to the University of Saint Joseph's beautiful campus.
About the festival:
This July, Capital Classics is staging a Shakespeare comedy, The Merry Wives of Windsor. Over its three-weekend run, the Greater Hartford Shakespeare Festival attracts more than 2,000 fans, who turn out —with their lawn chairs, blankets and picnic baskets — for this joyous outdoor theatre tradition. Directed by Geoffrey Sheehan (co-founder and artistic associate), this annual outdoor Shakespeare festival is the perfect way to spend a summer evening with your family or a date night with someone special.
It is the perfect thing for a warm summer night to bring the family or a date to and enjoy a picnic on the grass along with some hilarious and high-quality Shakespeare.
