The Old Globe 2006 Summer Shakespeare Festival

The Old Globe is pleased to present the 2006 Summer Shakespeare Festival with three dynamic productions: A Midsummer Night's Dream, Othello and Titus Andronicus - in its debut production at the Globe – running in nightly rotation in the Lowell Davies Festival Theatre June 18 – October 1, 2006. Darko Tresnjak will once again serve as the Festival's Artistic Director, helming A Midsummer Night's Dream and Titus Andronicus.

The Shakespeare Festival productions will be performed by a resident acting company comprised of professional actors, along with the graduate acting students from The Old Globe/University of San Diego Master of Fine Arts program. The Globe brought back Shakespeare in repertory during the 2004 summer season after a nearly 20-year absence, and the Theatre is thrilled to continue offering this time-honored tradition begun by Globe Founding Director Craig Noel.

The plays will rotate on a nightly basis, allowing local audiences and tourists multiple opportunities to see three different productions on three consecutive nights. There are also two weekends during the summer when patrons can see all five Globe productions, including The Sisters Rosensweig and Lincolnesque, over a Friday/Saturday/Sunday period (August 11-13 and August 18-20).
