The Los Gatos Shakespeare Festival

Los Gatos Shakespeare Festival 2014 Presentations

2014 Los Gatos Shakespeare FestivalThe Los Gatos Shakespeare Festival again comes to town at Oak Meadow Park with three plays, two from The Bard and one more contemporary play, care of the Festival Theatre Ensemble. In 2014, viewers will be treated to productions of Julius Caesar, Much Ado About Nothing, and the Pirates of Port Royal (written by by George Farquhar and adapted by Bruce W. De Les Demier, whose name is synonymous with the Festival Theatre Ensemble).

The three week season begins on Friday, July 18th and ends Saturday August 9th. All of the shows in Los Gatos begin at 8pm. For those unfamiliar with the venue, it is out of doors and as the evening progresses it gets chillier – so dress in layers! (You will not be sitting on a lawn, though: there are seats!)

Additionally, the Festival Theatre Ensemble hosts an evening of stage combat as a fundraiser to support the Billy Jones Wildcat Railroad. “Fight for the Train” takes place on July 31st. This is really fun for little kids especially. (My daughter was a theatre major in college and it sounded like “stage combat” was her most enjoyable course.)

For kids interested in the stage, there is a camp, too, Camp Shakespeare! Read the details here:

We are very, very fortunate to have a local theatre troupe perform here in Los Gatos each year. This is a very devoted group of actors and many, many support people. I would like to personally encourage you to come out and support them, Please go early in the season – that way, if you like it as much as I think you will, you can come back to catch one or two more shows!
