Shakespeare Festival’s most anticipated event of the year is our Mainstage production in Forest Park. Romeo and Juliet returns to Shakespeare Glen for the first time since our inaugural season.
Shakespeare Glen is located in Forest Park, just off Fine Arts Drive on the east side of Art Hill between the Saint Louis Zoo and the Saint Louis Art Museum.
Check out the Green show before the actual play starts. The Green Show creates an environment for pre-show picnickers to enjoy light entertainment while breaking bread with family and friends. Our 90-minute Green Show includes a wide variety of local entertainers, a family activity area, the Bard’s Buzz presentation which includes a summary and character outline of the play, and on Fridays only, a 25-minute version of the mainstage show performed by members of the Shakespeare Squadron.
