Shakespeare by the Sea (SBTS) will host its fourth annual garden tea party at MaGriffe Galerie in San Pedro on Saturday, April 27 at 2:00 pm. Celebrate the Bard with tea and sonnets in the beautiful garden at MaGriffe overlooking the Pacific Ocean. Enjoy performances of some of Shakespeare’s most moving sonnets read by your favorite Shakespeare by the Sea actors while you sip tea or champagne and savor scones, sandwiches and decadent desserts. The event is a fundraiser for the organization that provides admission-free, professional Shakespeare in communities from Ventura to Orange County each summer. 40 performances are planned for the upcoming season.
For its 16th season, SBTS will showcase two plays it has never before produced, King John, a quasi-historical tale of Medieval contest and conquest – and All’s Well that Ends Well, a cautionary story of a young woman whose love knows no bounds. Both plays shine a spotlight on ambition and its consequences, throwing in a characteristic measure of Shakespearean humor. They will be performed in repertory in San Pedro and 19 other locations throughout LA, Orange and Ventura Counties.
