Thank you for helping us wish William Shakespeare a wonderful 454th anniversary of his birth. We'll hope to see you all this July at King Lear at the Peck Pavilion!


Shakespeare's Birthday Party / "To Be! Shakespeare Here and Now!"
The most famous playwright in the English language was also an actor, a student and a very human Man of His Age.

Milwaukee's Shakespeare in the Park has made an annual tradition of celebrating the birthday of The Bard, and this year, HE gives the gift to YOU, in the form of his one-person show "To Be! Shakespeare Here and Now," in the first open public performance in Milwaukee since...?

"But, what IS 'To Be?'" you ask.

"To Be!" belongs to the audience that sees it. This birthday celebration show will be a little about the plays, a little about the themes, a little about the history AND...

"To Be!" is Humorous - Shakespeare used comedy to entertain his audiences, and "To Be!" follows suit with hilarious scenes, ridiculous characters and outrageous history.

"To Be!" is Interactive - Audience members take the stage, casting insults, learning manners and playing roles including Crab the Dog.

"To Be!" is Dynamic - portrayed by Ron Scot Fry, an actor and a teacher, but also a clown and a stuntman. Every show includes a swordfight, and if "To Be!" is a one-man show, then who ...?


Plus, cake. You remember the bit about the cake, right?

Doors open at 6 p.m., performance begins at 7 p.m.
Light snacks in the lounge before and after the show...and BIRTHDAY CAKE after.
Cash bar for soft and hard beverages -- cakes and ale <-- almost like it's right out of one of Will's own plays!
