We’re delighted to share the lineup for Bard on the Beach Shakespeare Festival’s 35th Season, which will run from June 11th to September 21st, 2024 at Sen̓áḵw/Vanier Park.

On the BMO Mainstage, director Diana Donnelly celebrates the topsy-turvy world of Twelfth Night (June to September), packed with romance and laughs, adventure and self-discovery, set to original music by a beloved Vancouver singer-songwriter. It will play in repertory with Shakespeare’s classic tale of vengeance, love, and loss, Hamlet (June to September), adapted and directed by Stephen Drover. On the Howard Family Stage, two productions will play in repertory: The Comedy of Errors (July to September), directed by Rebecca Northan, who conceived and directed this year’s smash-hit Goblin:Macbeth, and an irreverent, footloose Measure for Measure (July to September), adapted and directed by Governor General’s Award nominee Jivesh Parasram.

“We’re very excited to announce this Season. With comedy, music, romance, and drama, there’s something for everyone, whether they’re a committed Shakespeare fan or have never been to the theatre before. We’re so thrilled to work with some of Canada’s finest theatre creators to present a unique and diverse Season that will make you laugh, make you think, and move you deeply – all in equal parts,” said Christopher Gaze, Bard Founding Artistic Director.

Tickets for the 2024 Season will be available shortly on Bard on the Beach's ticketing page.
