Some Cupid kills with arrows, some with traps.
Beatrice and Benedick love to bicker. The only thing they might learn to love more? Each other. (They just don’t know it yet!) In this rollicking lampoon of relationships, romance, and the influence of town gossip, Shakespeare delivers a near-perfect enemies-to-lovers romantic comedy.
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.
Attending an outdoor show in the Boulder foothills can be unpredictable. Come prepared to enjoy the adventure by reviewing our weather policy and attire suggestions.
Save big with season tickets! This show is available in the Full, Pick 2 or 3, Weekday Will, and Choice packages or as an add-on to other season ticket orders.
Single ticket discounts are available for preview night, groups (10+), youth (K-12), seniors (65+), students, active military and CU students and employees. Volunteer ushers get to see the show for free.
