More Shakespeare at the Huntington Fun

Bard Meets Beatles

On Friday, April 17, join The Shakespeare Center of Los Angeles and SCLA’s Will Power to Schools program for a performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, presented by students from East LA Performing Arts Magnet High School. It’s the Bard Meets the Beatles in this magical journey through one hard day’s night staged on Mr. Huntington’s beautiful back porch. There will be a reception at 5:00 pm and the performance begins at 5:30 pm. The Huntington Gardens, 1151 Oxford Road, San Marino, CA 91108. [Reservations currently at capacity]

Then on Saturday, April 18, it’s Shakespeare Day at the Huntington. Stop by the SCLA booth between 11:00 am – 3:00 pm and create something unique with Shakespeare’s words. Feeling sweet? Devise a compliment to stir your true love’s heart. Feeling salty? Create an insult to give your next incident of road rage a theatrical flair.

Also from 11:00 am – 3:00 pm, Independent Shakespeare Co. will be performing scenes from some of Shakespeare’s best-loved plays in locations throughout the grounds. The family-friendly day includes interactive workshops and craft activities (like the one described above) for exploring Shakespeare and his world. Cost: Free with admission to The Huntington. For more information call (626) 405-2100 or go to
