Hip to Hip Theatre Company’s 10th anniversary season has something for everyone. Join us for two of Shakespeare’s best-loved and most action-packed plays, complete with political intrigue, romantic misadventures, vibrant music, civil war, a wrestling match, and a vengeful ghost!

Julius Caesar - 7:30 p.m.
Shakespeare’s sensational political thriller explores the tension between private loyalties and the public good, and unflinchingly questions the price of freedom. Caesar is determined to crown himself as Rome’s first emperor until a few senators, led by the idealistic, intellectual Brutus and his manipulative, rebellious friend Cassius, are prepared to sacrifice everything to liberate their country.


Kids & The Classics - 6:30 p.m.
This interactive children’s workshop is offered 1 hour before each performance. This theatrical experience will enrich, empower and entertain kids of all ages through a series of fun theatre games, teaching the tenets of ensemble playing, and introducing kids to the style and language of William Shakespeare's plays.

Start time: 6:30 pm

End time: 10:30 pm

As You Like It - 7:30 p.m.
A Shakespeare audience favorite, full of music and comedy, giddy wit, and love. This story follows its heroine Rosalind as she flees persecution at her uncle's court to find safety and, eventually, love, in the Forest of Arden. A classic comedy that proves “all the world’s a stage".
