2:00 PM House of Hungary Lawn Program Come and celebrate Hungary on the International Cottages' Lawn & Outdoor Stage.

This event takes place every year on August 20, or the Sunday that is closest to that date. This day is significant because it is in memory of the first King of Hungary, King Stephen I (St. Stephen). The entertainment is usually provided by the Karpatok Folkdance Ensemble from Los Angeles and Joann and Joe Semegi from Sun City to entertain the crowd with beautiful Hungarian folk dances and songs.

The food served on that day, besides the Hungarian sausage sandwich, are crepes (palacsinta), fried dough (langos) and authentic Hungarian pastries.

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.
