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”.

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.

Henry IV, Part 1 – Free Shakespeare by the River

3:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Foundry Wharf Green
Petaluma   CA

August 25-September 9, Fridays 7pm, Sat & Sun 3pm

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!

Free
