The Midsummer Shakespeare Festival is back for 2021!
Ophelia’s Jump Productions presents its Annual Midsummer Shakespeare Festival this July, a co-production with Pomona College, featuring TWELFTH NIGHT. The productions will run July 15-25, 2021, at Sontag Greek Theatre at Pomona College – an outdoor venue with plenty of space to accommodate social distancing. All performances begin at 8:00 p.m.
Prior to the performance, the venue will be open early to accommodate picnickers, with booths featuring artists and artisanal vendors. There will also be a nightly Green Show (pre- show entertainment). To make sure all participants can enjoy a fun, safe event, safety protocols will be in place. Visitors will be required to wear masks and maintain social distance, tickets will be sold in advance only, and household groups will be assigned picnicking space and seating. Concessions including craft beer, wine and snacks will be available.
Information and tickets are available at opheliasjump.org, or by calling 909-734-6565. Picnicking with beer and wine is permitted at this outdoor venue.
