The 2024 Season

 

Scenes from The Odyssey by Mary Zimmerman adapted from the translation of “The Odyssey” by Robert Fitzgerald directed by Danielle Georgiou, Justin Locklear and Jenni Stewart: A modern young woman is struggling to understand Robert Fitzgerald's translation of Homer's  The Odyssey when suddenly a Greek muse appears, and the young woman becomes the goddess Athena and a tireless advocate for Odysseus in his struggle to get home. With her trademark irreverent and witty twist on classic works, Zimmerman brings to life the epic story of Odysseus's ten-year journey, depicting his encounters with characters such as Circe, the Cyclops, Poseidon, Calypso, the Sirens, and others.

Twelfth Night directed by Rob Clare: Hilarity ensues in this classic Shakespeare romantic comedy through a classic case of mistaken identity. When Viola and her twin brother Sebastian are shipwrecked and believe the other to be drowned, Viola disguises herself as a young man and, under the name of Cesario, gets a job as a servant for the Duke, Orsino.

Julius Caesar directed by Katie Ibrahim: Concerned that Julius Caesar poses a threat to democracy, revolutionaries take the violent decision to murder him. As the world spins out of control, chaos and superstition lead to civil war in this exciting Shakespearean tragedy. 

The Odyssey and Twelfth Night will run concurrently June 14 through July 21, 2024 as part of the 52nd Shakespeare in the Park summer festival. Julius Caesar will run September 13 - October 13, 2024. All three shows will take place outdoors at the Samuell-Grand Amphitheater (1500 Tenison Parkway Dallas, TX). Picnicking is encouraged and beer and wine is allowed. Buy early bird tickets here.

Early Bird subscription tickets are now available: three tickets (one for each show) for just $50 (that's $16 per show!), six tickets for $95, or 12 tickets for $175. Beware the Ides of March! Early Bird pricing ends on March 15th.
