6:30 PM Open Reading: Much Ado About Nothing A group of soldiers return from the war. The world-weary Benedick and his friend Claudio find themselves reacquainted with Beatrice and Hero. As memories of conflict give way to a life of parties and masked balls, Claudio and Hero fall madly, deeply in love, while Benedick and Beatrice reignite their own altogether more combative courtship. ~From Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC)

Connie Boyd, the Director, has taught Drama and English for 28 years at San Pasqual High School. Took students to Fullerton, Thespians, Drama Teachers Association of Southern California, and English Speaking Union Shakespeare competitions. They performed in in-classroom presentations of poetry and short scenes. Directed and acted at Patio Playhouse for 33 years.

You're invited! welcome. We recast after every scene so all who want to get a chance to read. All casting is non-gender specific so women can read men's roles and vice-versa. If you'd like to just listen that's OK too. Please bring a copy of the play if possible. We may have a couple of extra copies. Your cell phones can also bring up the text. The benefit to you when you read Shakespeare out loud is that you sharpen your cold reading skills whether you're an actor or someone who just enjoys speaking and hearing the wonderful poetry and graceful language. It doesn't hurt your street cred either.

Presented by San Diego Shakespeare Society.

Admission/Cost: FREE

Tuesday, August 20 - 6:30 PM
8:00 PM Stage: Romeo and Juliet After his smash-hit Othello and record-breaking Hamlet, Barry Edelstein returns to the Shakespeare Festival to take on the greatest love story of all time. Verona's Montague and Capulet families have been feuding for ages, and whenever they meet, violence breaks out. But when Romeo glimpses Juliet across a crowded dance floor, something different happens. Can star-crossed love survive in a world of rivalry and rage? With a plot featuring a masqued ball, sleeping potions, and
all-out brawling in the street, wrapped in a text full of soaring poetry, it's no wonder Romeo and Juliet has inspired countless adaptations, from ballets to movies to musicals like West Side Story. Young love has never been as dangerous or delightful as it is in Shakespeare's romantic masterpiece, brought to vivid life on our outdoor stage under the stars.

Admission/Cost: $30 - $90
