Bard in the Yard is different, unique, one-of-a-kind. It's Shakespeare outdoors and in your face. “Everyone I know needs to go watch this!”

Shakespeare under the stars

Shakespeare under the stars returns to Duncan LittleCreek Gallery with Bard in the Yard 5! This unique production from the Silver Stage Players, features excerpts from the works of William Shakespeare performed in the intimate and outdoor setting of the DLC Gallery backyard. Conceived by director Frank L. Sawyer in 2011, the Bard in the Yard Project explores themes in Shakespeare’s plays. Bard in the Yard V - Bottoms Up! is scheduled for the Summer of 2021. Join us as we bid Covid-19 goodbye and bring you a chance to laugh outloud and outdoors at some of Shakespeare's most popular comedies. Puck reminds us all, "The Bard's song was made for all to hear, not just for nobles to comandeer. Let us have our joy and fun. Hear, hear! Cakes and ale for everyone!"
