TOPANGA, CALIF.: Theatricum Botanicum has announced its return to in-person performances at their outdoor amphitheatre complex in July. They will produce three shows in repertory through November.
The summer season will begin with Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar (July 10-Oct. 30). Ellen Geer will direct the iconic story of power, politics, and the elusive nature of truth through the vantage point of the Soothsayer.
More Shakespeare will follow with A Midsummer Night’s Dream (July 11-Nov. 7). The comedy will be infused with music and song.
Theatricum will also present the world premiere of The Last, Best Small Town (July 31-Nov. 6) by John Guerra. The play is set in Fillmore, the self-proclaimed last best small town in Southern California.
Seating will accommodate social distancing and audiences will be required to wear masks in accordance with Los Angeles County guidelines.
Theatricum Botanicum was founded by blacklisted actor Will Geer during the McCarthy era as a theatre for other blacklisted actors and folk singers. The theatre now hosts two outdoor amphitheatres situated in a natural canyon ravine and is committed to being an active defender of the planet and a warrior against climate change.
