BARD ON THE BEACH
SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL AT VANIER PARK
JUNE 8 - SEPTEMBER 30, 2023
Bard’s 2018 blockbuster As You Like It, brimming with Beatles hits, is back on the BMO Mainstage after delighting sold-out houses across Western Canada and the USA. It will play in repertory with Shakespeare’s thrilling political drama, Julius Caesar. On the Howard Family Stage, there are two contrasting productions: Henry V, set this season in a mythical realm and inspired by fantasy, and the hilariously interactive Goblin:Macbeth, created by a team of acclaimed Canadian theatre-makers.
Bard on the Beach also has educational programs for students and adults as well as special events during the festival.

The Beatles are back at Bard! It’s the 1960s all over again, and free spirits are escaping from Vancouver to get “back to the land”.?This joyful tribute to love, laughter and music features two-dozen classic Beatles songs, from “I Want to Hold Your Hand” to “Here Comes the Sun”, performed live on stage. The original Bard production played to sold-out houses in 2018 and has triumphed across North America since then.
“One of the most joyous productions in Bard’s history… You’d have to be a real Nowhere Man not to be on your feet and singing along.” Vancouver Sun (2018)
