Courtyard Shakespeare Festival
California Baptist University The Courtyard Shakespeare Festival returns for its second season at California Baptist University with productions of Julius Caesar and Taming of the Shrew running in repertory. Featuring talent from throughout the inland region, the Courtyard Shakespeare Festival rapidly gained a reputation last year for its outstanding performances, vision and production value. Julius Caesar is a tragedy that follows the conspiracy leading up to the iconic Roman leader’s brutal assassination, as well as the civil war that results. It is a violent tale of friendship, betrayal and guilt. On a much lighter side, Taming of the Shrew is a broad comedy. The wealthy Baptista has two daughters. One, Bianca, has many suitors vying for her hand. The other, Katharina, has inspired fear among men through her ill temper. For the adventurous traveler Petruchio, the promise of Katharina’s enormous dowry are too much, and he accepts the challenge of winning her hand. General admission: $12; Youth under 17: $6

Grey Gardens Riverside Repertory Theater Riverside Repertory is back with a unique and immersive production of Grey Gardens. Based on the 1975 documentary film of the same name, Grey Gardens is a tragic, frequently funny and utterly unforgettable musical about two "staunch" and legendary American women: Edith Bouvier Beale, and her grown daughter, Edie. Grey Gardens begins at the grand 1941 engagement party of stunning and spirited "Little Edie" Beale to handsome Navy man Joe Kennedy, Jr., hosted by Edie's mother, Edith Bouvier Beale. As the upper-crust, New England family gathers, so do the storm clouds of trouble that eventually leave both "Big" and "Little" Edie alone and heartbroken. The second act launches the narrative into the overgrown, cat-riddled, and bug-infested estate in 1973, where the two Edies live, alone. "Big Edie" is now bedridden, and "Little Edie" grows more eccentric by the day, haunted by dreams of love and success, long since dashed.
When: June 9 - 18, 2017 Where: The Lightner House Theater For more information and to purchase tickets, please call 951.300.8515 or visit www.riversiderep.org
