Join us under the stars for a magical summer as New Swan Shakespeare Festival presents two beloved classics in running repertory. 

This summer season, New Swan presents Shakespeare’s comic masterpiece, Twelfth Night, and one of the Bard’s most challenging and rarely performed plays, Measure for Measure.


Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare
The Bard’s comic masterpiece Twelfth Night blends romance, music, poetry, swordplay, mistaken identities and the intoxicating madness of love. Join us for a transcendent tale on the edge of the high seas.

Measure for Measure by William Shakespeare
All seven of the deadly sins are running rampant in Vienna. Can Isabella, a would-be nun, navigate this corruption without losing her soul in the process? Don’t miss your chance to see one of Shakespeare’s most challenging and rarely performed plays.


For more information please see the New Swan Shakespeare Festival website.

The festival is hosted and produced in collaboration with the Department of Drama at the University of California, Irvine, the Office of Research, the Claire Trevor School of the Arts, and the School of Humanities.
