MacBeth & The Taming of the Shrew

This summer, see Shakespeare’s powerful tragedy Macbeth and early comedy The Taming of the Shrew under the stars. Both works will be playing outdoors throughout the summer on alternate nights, a rare repertoire summer at Shakespeare in High Park. This pay-what-you-can event is one of Toronto’s favourite traditions.

Please note: When you make a contribution, our ticketing system will assign you a random seat number for each ticket. Because all reservations are general admission, please disregard any seat number that appears in your shopping cart and confirmation receipt.
