COLORADO SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL
The Festival features a professional theatre company that works with the University of Colorado Boulder. The Festival celebrates Shakespeare and his influence and vitality through exciting, high-quality productions.
Acknowledging its roots, CSF’s Summer 2017 lineup will include the plays audiences saw in the first season of 1958: The Taming of the Shrew, Julius Caesar and Hamlet, Shakespeare’s undisputed masterpiece.
Plays are performed beneath summer night skies in the historic Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre and in the newly renovated indoor University Theatre.
MARY RIPPON OUTDOOR THEATRE
The Theatre has hosted plays since 1944, when Romeo and Juliet was staged. The stage, lighting and acoustics have been upgraded numerous times since.
The University Theatre is a traditional indoor proscenium stage with balcony seating located in the central part of the picturesque CU campus.

THE TAMING OF THE SHREW
June 11 - August 13
The CSF opens the 60th season at the Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre with a zany comedy set in New York City during the swinging 1940s. Kate, a plucky pilot who has returned from the fray of World War II, meets her match, Petruchio. On the vibrant streets of Little Italy, the two duke it out in a battle of wits, dance the night away and discover, against all odds, a mutual respect that’s almost like being in love.
June 23 - August 13
Shakespeare’s masterpiece, often considered the greatest play in the English language, returns in 2017, 60 years after its first CSF production. When Hamlet’s world is ripped apart by his father’s sudden death and his mother’s hasty remarriage, the young prince’s mind wrestles with his heart in a tormented quest to uncover the truth. Staged for the first time inside the intimate University Theatre, the performance is generating excitement throughout the theatre community and beyond.
July 7 - August 12
As Rome’s leader basks in his victory and ignores a series of bad omens, jealous critics conspire to topple his regime –only to find later that their efforts were for naught. Lies, scheming and scandal meet in a spellbinding political thriller that seems all too familiar in today’s polarized times.
ROSENCRANTZ AND GUILDENSTERN
July 21 - August 13
With humor and quirkiness, Hamlet is brilliantly retold through the eyes of two minor characters. Rosencrantz and Guildenstern, two bewildered schoolmates sent to pull Prince Hamlet out of his descent into madness, grapple with fate, free will and the game of life. CSF’s production brings its full Hamlet cast on stage to inhabit playwright Tom Stoppard’s ingenious parallel universe of wit and wisdom.
Henry VI, PART 3
August 6 - August 8
Summer 2017’s hottest ticket just might be Henry VI, Part 3, the latest of CSF’s widely hailed “Original Practices” productions in the iconic Mary Rippon Outdoor Theatre. With two performances of the final play in Shakespeare’s razor-sharp War of the Roses chronicle, which also inspired the hit series Game of Thrones, CSF is set to complete the Shakespeare canon for a second time. All previous Original Practices shows sold out months in advance.
Programming is subject to change and shows can be added, postponed or canceled.
