Welcome to Shakespeare Royal Oak

Since 2001, Shakespeare Royal Oak has presented Michigan's premier outdoor Shakespeare festival with the area's best professional and emerging professional artists, in a one-of-a-kind outdoor summer setting. We also offer education programs for grades 1-8 (KidsAct!) and grades 9-12 (SRO Teen Ensemble). Through the years, we've entertained thousands, and employed hundreds of local artists, many of whom have gone on to succeed in theater, television and film. Our summer students learn creative thinking, empathy, and problem solving skills, as well how fun it is to just make friends and do a show. SRO has received many accolades from community and state leaders, and has garnered its fair share of artistic awards, too. Most importantly, we continue to create a sustaining movement of artistic and community excellence, thanks to our artists, patrons and sponsors. So bring your family and friends to enjoy this experience as we continue making magic in the park for you. Welcome to Shakespeare Royal Oak!

2024: Twelfth Night

Directed by D.B. Schroeder
Show dates July 25-August 4, 2024Avast ye mateys! Get on board the Bard’s pirate ship and set sail to the West Indies with Viola, Olivia, and the gang as they plunder for love in Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night! After her ship wrecks off the coast of Illyria, Viola disguises herself to serve Duke Orsino, who governs the island to stamp out piracy. But Viola falls in love with Orsino and can't reveal herself, of course; yet Orsino is enamored with the most renowned lady pirate, Olivia. Then Olivia meets Viola in disguise and whoa, shiver me timbers! This saltwater romance of fools comes full of fun for a perfect summer evening under the stars. Twelfth Night will run eight performances July 25–August 4 on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 3:00 p.m. Tickets are $35 and will go on sale in June 12. Tickets will also be available in person at the Starr Jaycee Park box office beginning 90 minutes prior to each performance.  Mark your calendar and we look forward to seeing you in the park this summer!
