Shakespeare on the Bluff

A crowd of people watching an outdoor production of Shakespeare

In Summer 2020, the Theatre Arts Department at Loyola Marymount University will be putting on the 3rd Annual Shakespeare on the Bluff festival, featuring productions of The Tempest in June and Henry V in July, to be staged in LMU's beautiful Lawton Plaza as well as in Playa Vista. The performers are professional actors as well as LMU alumni, faculty and current students.

All performances are free and open to the community, family-friendly, and will be 90 minutes long. Come bring a picnic, your lawn chairs, and enjoy some Shakespeare in the Park on our beautiful campus! Please note that pets, alcohol, weapons and marijuana are not permitted on campus.
