10th Annual Shakespeare in the Pines

Laark Productions, in partnership with the Highlands Center for Natural History, present the 10th annual Shakespeare in the Pines: William Shakespeare’s The Two Gentlemen of Verona. June 2023.


The Two Gentlemen of Verona

“For he was more than over-shoes in love.”


Friday and Saturday, June 16 & 17 and June 23 & 24
Gates open at 5:30 pm for picnic dinners and the Amphitheater seating is available starting at 6:00 pm. Show starts at 7:00 pm. 


Take two best friends who disagree about love…throw in a few private letters, a handful of saucy servants, two overbearing parents, and one rope ladder; add several sudden plot reversals, girls in disguise, a gang of desperate outlaws and a dog named Crab. 

Mix well with William Shakespeare’s matchless puns and poetry and serve up a swashbuckling comedy about friendship and faithfulness, love and loyalty.

The incredible optional meal from El Gato Azul promises to be delicious consisting of:

Italian Country Torta: Prosciutto, roasted bell pepper and fresh basil with a pecorino cheese spread on mini sourdough roll
