DallasShakespeare Dallas is already in its 48th season, having begun with Othello in the fall and Hamlet for its first indoor, winter show. That season will continue this summer with repertory productions: As You Like It, and the regional premiere of Shakespeare in Love, Lee Hall’s play adapted from the 1998 Oscar-winning movie with a screenplay by Tom Stoppard and Marc Norman. Those shows are at Samuell-Grand Amphitheatre at Tenison Park. 

To get a jump on things, the full 49th season has been announced and it has a venue change and an international conference. The season kicks off this fall with Macbeth, which will start at Samuell-Grand (Sept. 18-28), but the second location is in a new spot, The Sound at Cypress Waters in Coppell (Oct. 3-13).

In the winter of 2020 comes Jon Jory’s adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice at Moody Performance Hall, Jan. 10-19. And the summer of 2020 brings The Merchant of Venice and Much Ado About Nothing to Samuell-Grand.

Something else to look for is the Shakespeare Theatre Association’s annual conference, which will be in Dallas Jan. 29-Feb. 1. The event will have speakers, panels, performances and more.

To learn more about that, go to the Shakespeare Dallas website,

To learn about all that AND have drinks and fun with Shakespeare Dallas and TheaterJones peeps, come to the Shakespeare Dallas Pub Crawl in Deep Ellum, 2-7 p.m. Saturday, March 9. Check-in starts at 2 p.m. at Kettle Art, and there will be six bar stops, a retail “shop hop,” and trivia and costume contest. Prizes includes day passes to the co-working space The Common Desk (at any of its DFW locations), tickets to see the National Theatre Live presentation of Ivo van Hove’s adaptation of All About Eve at the Angelika Film Center in Dallas or Plano, and the grand prize of two tickets to the Dallas Opera’s production of Falstaff and a stay in downtown Dallas’ Magnolia Hotel.
