Bard on the Beach 2010 Season

Comments 3 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Vancouver’s favourite outdoor Shakespeare experience, Bard on the Beach, will be back again this summer with a fully-packed performance schedule.

Bard on the Beach

My Bard on the Beach contests last year were my most popular of 2009 so I’m pleased to announce ad help promote the productions that will take place June 3rd – September 25th, 2010.

  • Antony and Cleopatra: June 16 to September 24
  • Studio Stage Tent

      The backdrop for the Bard on the Beach stage can’t be beat. I can’t wait for the season to start this year. It’s been a few years since I’ve gone, but not this year! Thanks for getting me stoked about it.

      I know about Bard-B-Q and went one year (Rosencrantz & Guildenstern Are Dead), but what are those other special events?

      Hi Michael,
      The other special events are a wine tasting and play event. This usually sells out so I would suggest purchasing tickets early. The Forum is an opportunity to look deeper into the world of Shakespeare with this educational programming. Operas & Arias is a night of music and opera on the Bard stage with members of the UBC Opera Ensemble.
      I hope that answers your question.
      Cynnamon S.
