Single tickets to CSF’s 60th season on sale Nov. 28

CSF nods to the past and looks toward the future June 11-Aug. 13, 2017

Single tickets to the Colorado Shakespeare Festival’s 60th season are on sale to the public starting Monday, Nov. 28 at 10 a.m. Tickets are available online, over the phone at (303) 492-8008 or in person at the CU Presents Box Office, 972 Broadway, Boulder.

In a nod to the past, CSF’s Summer 2017 lineup will remount the plays audiences saw in its original 1958 season: “The Taming of the Shrew,” a laugh-out-loud audience favorite; “Julius Caesar,” a classic political thriller; and “Hamlet,” Shakespeare’s undisputed masterpiece.

The season also includes Tom Stoppard’s fresh, funny “Rosencrantz and Guildenstern Are Dead,” which retells “Hamlet” from the perspective of two minor characters, and two exclusive Original Practices performances of the rarely seen Henry VI, Part 3. At the end of the summer, CSF will have completed the Shakespeare canon for a second time.

“This particular season has been three years in the making,” says CSF Producing Artistic Director Timothy Orr.  “Revisiting the original season of the Colorado Shakespeare Festival is not only a great way to look back across 60 incredible years of Shakespeare in Boulder, but it’s also a fantastic way to embark on the next 60 years.”
