Events include The Tragedy of Hamlet (Chapman University Department of Theatre), a semi-staged production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream with complete incidental music by Felix Mendelssohn (Chapman University Hall-Musco Conservatory of Music and Department of Theatre), Tom Stoppard’s modern masterpiece Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead (Chapman University Department of Theatre), and Pacific Symphony's presentation of Prokofiev's Romeo and Juliet ("Romeo and Juliet Reimagined” concert series), as well as a variety of lectures and master classes by renowned artists and scholars.  In April, our festival concludes with an academic symposium bringing together Shakespearean experts from across the country.  Learn more...
