    Shakespeare on the River

    The Magik Theatre, San Antonio’s professional family theatre, presents Shakespeare on the River – a FREE event celebrating all things Shakespeare.


    Theatre-goers can come early to enjoy food trucks along Villita Way and short Shakespeare performances by local performers. The highlight of this event is Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre’s The Taming of the Shrew. The company returns to San Antonio for a second year, having performed Twelfth Night at last year’s Shakespeare in the Park. Performances of The Taming of the Shrew are November 16, 17 and 18 at 7:30 p.m.


    Grab a seat close to the stage as AST transports you back to the lively and colorful days of old world Italy, where embracing adventure, music, and above all, passion was a way of life. Through a flurry of song and spectacle, join the rambunctious and arrogant Petruchio in his quest to woo the unimpressed and headstrong “Kate the Cursed.”  Inspired by Italian traditions of puppetry and commedia dell’arte, our players bring the audience right into the middle of the action. So come ready to play–we can’t tell the story without you!?


    Program Details:

    Half-hour Shakespeare scenes by local high school students starting at 6:30 p.m. each night.
    Half-hour musical pre-show starting at 7p.m. each night.
    The The Taming of the Shrew starts at 7:30 p.m. and will end around 8:45 p.m. each night.
