NON-CENTER HIGHLIGHT: 2017 Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival…elsewhere!


This weekend is the official kick-off for the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival. DPAC is not involved, but that’s okay! They’ll get to us soon enough! We have our many events for the festival, but there is some off-site fun to be had as well.

Tonight Shakespeare After Hours kicks off the festival at 9:00 pm at LangLab (1302 High St, South Bend). Here is the info:

Enjoy Shakespeare at his bawdy, boozy, bloody best. Local civic theatres and dance companies present scenes intended for a mature audience. Raise a glass (literally) as we toast the Bard’s scandalous side at South Bend’s LangLab.

Sounds like a good time…maybe too good of a time!


Tomorrow (July 15th) at 2:00 pm at Washington Hall is the annual ShakeScenes performance.

Here is the info:

Ten 10-minute scenes performed by young actors from throughout Michiana. Family-friendly takes on Shakespeare’s greatest hits.


On Sunday (July 16th) the Touring Company begins its run of Twelfth Night in Valparaiso. The company will perform throughout the area at outdoor venues and end right back here at Notre Dame in front of the Main Building 6:30 pm on Monday August 21st.


New to the festival is Shakespeare in the Streets, which runs Wednesday July 26th to Saturday July 29th at 7 pm at Fremont Park in South Bend.

Here is the info:

Shakespeare in the Streets is a nine-week program involving community-based organizations in South Bend. Focused on the city’s west side, the effort will allow young people to work directly with adults to create, rehearse, and perform a theatre production inspired by Shakespeare.

 Feel free to check out these events around town. Should be a great time!
