For 2018, our 20th season, SVShakes has crafted a season we affectionately refer to as, “Old, New and Much Ado…”
ShakesSports – The Macbeths playing hockey? Midsummer fairies having a hand in a tennis match? King Lear… playing Quidditch?!? Anything can happen at Silicon Valley Shakespeare’s fourth annual 48-hour Play Festival, co-produced with the Foothill College Theatre Arts Department, where our writers will explore what happens when sports get thrown into a Shakespeare classic!
Shakespeare’s Most Wanted – Who is Shakespeare’s most notorious villain? Find out as SVS remounts this past audience favorite for our Spring Event that will feature some of your favorite SVS actors from past seasons!
As You Like It – Step into a pop-up book of fairytale romance as you journey into the forest of Arden. Staying true to period, our FREE Shakespeare in the park will celebrate the classical side of SVS.
The Hood of Sherwood – In the spirit of innovation, SVS offers its audience a world premiere production with The Hood of Sherwood, written by local playwright Doug Brook. Full of adventure and romance, this original take on the classic tales of Robin Hood will take audiences on a journey that illuminates the importance of community and standing up for what you believe in.
Much Ado About Nothing – What better way for SVS to close out our 20th season, but in the Roaring 1920’s?!? Set against a backdrop of art deco styling and Jazz music, Shakespeare’s wit and mastery of word play shine in this fan favorite comedy.
