My teenage daughter and I saw (and loved) all the comedies shown this season. The company brought some terrific talent to Santa Cruz this year--great directing, acting, and costumes. Nothing better than to experience the Forest of Arden in the redwood glen at UCSC. Shakespeare play on! Definitely plan to enjoy a couple of afternoons or evenings with the Bard next season, mid-July through mid-August.

It was fun to come back to this great outdoor venue and this production did not disappoint. One of the best Shakespeare plays done just right. Kudos to all who had a hand in the return of this great Santa Cruz tradition.

Now Santa Cruz Shakespeare (new organization, I guess...) two plays: As You Like It and Merry Wives of Windsor. The setting is gorgeous and the cast was SUPERB. GO!

Shakespeare lives on in Santa Cruz! The festival has been reborn as Santa Cruz Shakespeare and the new organization has negotiated with UCSC to use the same location, the beautiful glen for the 2014 season which recently opened with 'As You Like It' and will be joined with 'Merry Wives of Windsor' and as in past years, a 'fringe' show put on by the company's interns.

Media reviews of the 'As You Like It' were glowing and our group loved the show and entire experience as much or more than past years. It's wonderful to know that the tradition lives on with quality preserved.
