Shakespeare single tickets on sale now

Three Shakespeare and two non-Shakespeare plays are on offer next summer.

Single tickets to the Colorado Shakespeare Festival’s 2018 season are on sale to the public starting Monday, Nov. 27 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.

On the heels of its wildly successful 60th season, the nation’s second-oldest Shakespeare festival is set to focus on hidden gems and modern classics in 2018. The season of epic love stories, family dramas and laugh-out-loud fun includes “Love’s Labour’s Lost,” “Richard III,” “Cyrano de Bergerac” and “You Can’t Take It With You.” As is tradition, CSF also offers a one-night-only Original Practices production of “Edward III,” which promises to sell out quickly.

Last season, CSF celebrated its 60th season with big-name plays and officially completed the full Shakespeare canon for a second time. Producing Artistic Director Timothy Orr says he was thrilled to look beyond those two big milestones and discover that the possibilities were endless.

“The question we started asking ourselves was, ‘What now? What next?’” he says. “The answer was: ‘We can do anything.’ In a way, it’s a blank slate.”
