On Stage 2018 Marin Shakespeare Summer Mainstage Season

Celebrating 29 Years of Shakespeare Under the Stars
Forest Meadows Amphitheatre, Dominican University of California

2018 Summer Season

We’re excited to be making plans for a major renovation of the Forest Meadows Amphitheatre, which we hope to begin after the close of the 2018 season — you’ll notice we are starting performances much sooner than usual, and ending in early August, in order to have time to complete the renovations.  It’s an exciting and unusual time and we’re happy to tell you more about the great things to come!
