Young American Shakespeare Festival

When Shakespeare wrote that all the world’s a stage, he probably wasn’t referring to the new performance space in the Commonwealth Theatre Center’s parking lot, but no problem — live theater is back! This week and next, young actors and production crew members are bringing us the Bard with three outdoor productions of Shakespearean favorites: “Hamlet,” “Much Ado About Nothing,” and “The Comedy of Errors.” Each play will have five performances. There’ll also be pre-show activities for kids and adults alike, plus food trucks and drinks. Get your pod-seating tickets before they make a quick exeunt. To see or not to see the shows — there is no question!
