Your visit to the New Swan Shakespeare Festival!
The New Swan Shakespeare Festival is Orange County’s only professional Shakespeare festival performed outdoors in a sustainable, portable mini-Elizabethan theatre, the New Swan Theater, where the audience and actors inhabit the same dynamic, in-the-round space.
Our 2014 Season under the stars will run from July 10, 2014 – August 30, 2014. It will feature a wide range of festivities and educational opportunities as well as two dynamic fully produced productions of Shakespeare’s greatest works:
- Romeo and Juliet, directed by the acclaimed Calvin MacLean
- Twelfth Night, directed by esteemed Eli Simon
The New Swan Theater is located at the Gateway Commons, next to Aldrich Park and Langson Library at the University of California, Irvine.
