Pericles

"Few love to hear the sins they love to act."

TWO PERFORMANCES ONLY! Summer’s hottest ticket is the Colorado Shakespeare Festival’s Original Practices performance. This summer, revisit "Pericles," the story of a shipwrecked prince on the run after discovering a king’s terrible secret. CSF’s annual tradition of presenting plays as they were originally performed sells out months in advance—be sure to reserve your ticket right away!

Since 1958, the Colorado Shakespeare Festival has delighted audiences with professional theatre on the CU Boulder campus. Complete your Colorado summer with Shakespeare under the stars in the historic Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre—complimentary seatbacks included.
