2019: Othello and The Tempest

Main Stage Show

Othello lives for love, passion and pride, but is manipulated by jealousy and revenge. No modern thriller can match it’s understanding of what it means to fear your friend and distrust your spouse. This ride takes us deep into the mind of a powerful man boldly facing the deepest fear of his life. An evening in the park with Othello will be the highlight of your summer.

Shakespeare Royal Oak will present William Shakespeare’s Othello Thursday through Sunday evenings July 25 – August 4.

Water Works Teen Ensemble

Water Works Teen Ensemble returns to the festival for its eight summer. The original two-week outdoor creative experience for high school students provides an opportunity for the participants to cast, direct, and present a complete performance of a Shakespeare play. This summer, the ensemble presents Macbeth on the Starr Jaycee Park stage.

Believing their evil acts are justified by spirits, Macbeth and his wife climb to the top of the kingdom the old-fashioned way, only to face the wrath of the same charms that first guided their hands.  This all-high school production of Macbeth is a must see with only three performances, July 27, 29 and 30.

Performances of Macbeth will be at 12:00pm on Saturday, July 27; and at 7:00pm, Monday, July 29 and Tuesday, July 30.
