2018 Season


July 27, 29, 31 & August 2, 4

Houston Shakespeare Festival opens their 44th season with Shakespeare's gripping masterpiece, "Hamlet." A young prince is summoned back from his university studies to find his world turned inside out, with his mother re-married to his uncle and a ghost haunting the battlements. Unearthing the truth in a court of corruption takes a live-or-die kind of courage - does Hamlet have it?

The Comedy of Errors

July 28 & August 1,3, & 5

Houston Shakespeare Festival returns to Miller Outdoor Theatre with a riotous farce of mistaken identity! Double trouble comes to the port city of Ephesus when two sets of twins, separated as infants, pop up, causing mayhem and mirth. Laughs fly and surprises abound in Shakespeare's earliest comedy.
