This year’s Midsummer Shakespeare Festival features “Measure for Measure” and “The Pirates of Penzance” performed in repertory. This event is sponsored by Ophelia’s Jump Productions and Pomona College.
Measure for Measure will be performed on July 13, 15, 21 and 23.
The Pirates of Penzance will be performed on July 14, 16, 20 and 22.
The beautiful lawns surrounding the Sontag Greek Theatre at Pomona College are perfect for picnicking. Doors open at 6:00pm on Thursday and Friday and at 5:30 pm on Saturday & Sunday for picnicking and relaxing before the performance. Picnic Blankets are recommended. The seating at the Sontag consists of concave stone benches most of which do not have a back. Comfy backed stadium seats will be available for rental. Beach chairs are not allowed.
On Saturdays and Sunday community vendors, artisans, and organizations set up booths and games. Stop at the photo booth, enjoy a Bert & Rocky’s frozen lemonade, or pick up a one-of-a-kind cigar box guitar. Activities are family friendly and support Ophelia’s Jump’s non-profit mission as well as other local non-profits and educational organizations.
