The ninth annual Charlotte Shakespeare Festival opens with a musical, 1960s staging of William Shakespeare’s "Love’s Labor’s Lost" about four best friends who attempt to swear off women and devote themselves to study for three years. But when a princess and her hot friends show up at their doorstep, will they be able to keep their vow, or will they jump head over heels in love? Directed by Charlotte Shakespeare founder Elise Wilkinson, this hilarious, Beatles-inspired musical romp is set in the 1960s. 

“Love’s Labor’s Lost” is appropriate for all ages, although an adult should accompany children. 

Arrive early for a 5 p.m. workshop, which are good for children and teens because it helps them understand the text and gives them an opportunity to ask questions about the production. Show time is at 6:30 p.m.

All performances and workshops are free, but donations are encouraged ($5 minimum suggested). Seating is first-come, first-served and opens 90 minutes prior to curtain. Advance donors can reserve seats for a minimum $25 donation. Local musicians, performing artists, storytellers and poets will entertain audiences beginning 45 minutes prior to each performance.

Call (704) 625-1288 or email hi@charlotteshakespeare.com for more information.
