Will Geer’s Theatricum Botanicum
2019 Summer Season
June 15, 2019 @ 8:00 pm - September 29, 2019 @ 8:00 pm$10 – $42
Summer has arrived!
The 2019 repertory season at Theatricum Botanicum’s magical, outdoor Topanga amphitheater includes:
- Twelfth Night, with original music that lends Shakespeare’s joyous romantic comedy a refreshing new sound and lifts the elevated language to even greater heights
- Theatricum’s signature production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, in which the Topanga woods are once again transformed into an enchanted forest inhabited by lovers both fairy and human
- Moby Dick–Rehearsed, adapted by the great Orson Welles from the novel by Herman Melville — an action-packed adventure in which an acting troupe, working between performances of King Lear, transforms a bare stage into the yardarms, sails, masts and deck of a ship hunting the great white whale
- A new adaptation, by Theatricum artistic director Ellen Geer, of An Enemy of the People, which resets Henrik Ibsen’s powerful play in a small town in South Carolina in the 1980s
- The Skin of Our Teeth, Thornton Wilder’s Pulitzer Prize-winning satirical tribute to the indestructibility of the American nuclear family
- D.L Coburn’s Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award-winning The Gin Game starring real life husband and wife Alan Blumenfeld and Katherine James in a coproduction with the Sierra Madre Playhouse.
All productions perform in repertory through September 29 at Theatricum’s spectacular outdoor venue in the heart of Topanga.
