Natural Awakenings Ann Arbor Michigan

Shakespeare in the Arb

May 04, 2019 02:00AM

The 2019 Shakespeare in the Arb play is Twelfth Night, Shakespeare’s story of love and identity that contains some of the Bard’s most well-loved speeches and songs. Performances will take place at 6:30 p.m., June 6 to 9, 13 to 16 and 20 to 23.

Shakespeare in the Arb is unique in the way the productions are staged, with scenes and audiences moving through the Nichols Arboretum on the University of Michigan campus. There is no fixed stage; instead, the audience follows the action through different locations in the arboretum.

Now in its 19th year, Shakespeare in the Arb is directed by Kate Mendeloff of the U-M Residential College, Carol Gray and Graham Atkin, and performed by U-M students and community players.
