Anytime is a good time to visit The Old Globe Theatre. During the summer, three theatres are in operation: a large main stage, a small arena stage, and the outdoor Festival Stage where three plays are done in repertory. The repertory typically includes to Shakespeare plays and a third, more contemporary piece. Staging on all stages ranges from brilliantly creative to absolutely magical. Actors with excellent stage, film, and TV credentials are featured along with topnotch directors and designers. Centered in Balboa Park, this is the place for an evening or matinee of outstanding theatre. Backstage tours are also available for visitors. Simply call the theatre office to find out whether one is being offered during your stay.
