While the current season of Bard on the Beach continues until September 24th, Bard Artistic Director Christopher Gaze has announced the lineup for the Festival’s 34th season, which will run from June to September, 2023.

It includes the return of the most successful production in Bard’s history, a sweeping historical drama, an iconic tale of political intrigue, and a unique, interactive theatre piece drawn from Shakespeare’s MacBeth.

On the BMO Mainstage, the Beatles are back, baby! As You Like It, with its blend of Shakespearean comedy and Beatles’ hits performed live, broke every Bard box office record in 2018; it will open the 2023 Festival after delighting audiences across Western Canada and the USA. It will play inrepertory with Shakespeare’s gripping political drama, Julius Caesar.

The Howard Family Stage is host to two contrasting productions: Henry V, set this season in a mythical realm and inspired by fantasy, and the hilariously interactive Goblin: Macbeth, created by a team of acclaimed Canadian theatre artists.
