A 10th Anniversary Gala
Opening Night of The Comedy of Errrorrs


Join us for a midsummer's night to remember as we make our triumphant return to the stage!

Not to be missed, this exclusive event will be a magical and elegant evening under the stars celebrating the tenth anniversary season, and the opening night of The Comedy of Errrorrs. Each summer, New Swan Shakespeare Festival is one of UCI and Orange County’s most highly anticipated events.

Proceeds from the Celebrate New Swan Gala support our 2022 season and year-long educational programs. With your support, we will continue to serve our community by producing accessible, impactful, and meaningful productions that explore the humanity of the Shakespearean canon by embracing education, research, and community outreach.
