A must see!! Outstanding acting and creative productions. And the new home at the Audrey Stanley Grove in Upper DeLaveage Park is a perfect setting for outdoor theater.

Superb troupe, wonderful presentation. On the brink of bankruptcy Patrick Stewart stepped up and helped ensure its continuation for a bit. Quite the treasure.

My teenage daughter and I saw (and loved) all the comedies shown this season. The company brought some terrific talent to Santa Cruz this year--great directing, acting, and costumes. Nothing better than to experience the Forest of Arden in the redwood glen at UCSC. Shakespeare...More

It was fun to come back to this great outdoor venue and this production did not disappoint. One of the best Shakespeare plays done just right. Kudos to all who had a hand in the return of this great Santa Cruz tradition.
