Trinity Shakespeare Festival
TCU is home to the Trinity Shakespeare Festival, an Actor’s Equity professional summer repertory theatre where TCU students are hired each year to work side-by-side with outstanding professional actors, directors and designers to create acclaimed Shakespeare productions. Our performances are consistently cited by Dallas-Fort Worth critics as among the best in the region.
Twelfth Night is considered by many to be Shakespeare’s greatest comedy. The story of twins, Viola and Sebastian, making their way, separately, through a new and strange land. It is the first “twins” play written by Shakespeare after the death of his son, Hamnet. It is both hysterically funny and movingly poignant. Perhaps Shakespeare’s greatest work. Twelfth Night is directed by Trinity favorite Blake Hackler. It plays June 19 – July 8, 2018. Don’t miss it!
The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet
Romeo and Juliet is Shakespeare’s signature work of love and passion. Shakespeare’s most memorable characters are revealed in this breathtaking and sweeping look at young love gone awry. Romeo and Juliet is directed by Trinity Shakespeare’s Founding Artistic Director, T.J. Walsh (The Winter’s Tale, The Tempest, The Merry Wives of Windsor, and The Taming of the Shrew, among others). It plays June 19 – July 8, 2018. We hope to see you there!
