AS YOU LIKE IT
JUNE 9, 10, 11,16,17
on the lawn at the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts
Feel free to bring folding chairs, coolers, and the whole family!
Shakespeare on the Concho is a partnership between Be Theatre of San Angelo, Texas and the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts bringing free outdoor performances of the works of William Shakespeare to San Angelo.
The idea behind Shakespeare on the Concho is that William Shakespeare was an entertainer. So, if his plays are boring or do not entertain there is really no sense in performing them. Of course, people cannot be entertained if they do not understand. So, all performances are from adapted scripts, edited both for language and occasional content. You can preview and find out more about the shows we have done and upcoming shows each year on this website as well as find other resources about Shakespeare and his work. Our desire is to make Shakespeare accessible for the ordinary West Texan. No Elizabethan costumes are used the actors are only a few feet away and sometimes they may be right in among you.
Performances are in June each year. Bring a chair, your family and a picnic and cooler to the south lawn of the San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts and enjoy one of our performances. There is no cost for admission and no reservations are needed. The shows take place in a very casual atmosphere that brings the works of Shakespeare to life in a fun and interactive setting.
