In 2017, San Francisco Shakespeare Festival celebrates 35 years as the Bay Area’s acclaimed provider of free Shakespeare performances with a production of “Hamlet”. The play speaks strongly about disenfranchisement, frustration, and the need for action during troubled times. Hamlet is torn between revenging his father’s murder and going along quietly with the new regime. He shares his inner turmoil in a series of soliloquies which have become familiar all over the world.

Audiences can further their enjoyment of this production by attending a fun and informative 15-minute Green Show, 30 minutes before the performance.

No tickets or reservations are needed for these complimentary shows.

Petaluma Shakespeare Company presents Henry IV, Part 1.

It’s not easy being King. Henry has his hands full with civil strife, a plot to over throw his rule and a son he cannot respect. From the sleazy tavern to the regal court, Henry IV, Part 1 runs the gamut from troubled family life to epic stories of bravery: fathers and sons, kings and princes, honor and revenge… culminating in a battle royale. Relax by the Petaluma river and enjoy a Shakespeare classic!

This is an outdoor event. Evenings can be chilly and afternoons can be warm. Bring your low back chair. There will also be a “blanket only” section. Food and drinks are encouraged. Enjoy!
