Event Description

The Greater Victoria Shakespeare Festival brings engaging and theatrical Shakespearian experiences to the community of Victoria, British Columbia. Since 1991, the GVSF has created opportunities for local artists and has involved local businesses, educators and citizens to celebrate the theatrical arts in our community. For the last eleven years, the GVSF has performed outdoors on the beautiful grounds of Camosun College’s Lansdowne Campus, where audience members of diverse ages, cultures, and economic backgrounds are inspired every summer by the immortal words of Shakespeare under the stars. This year we are presenting two works of Shakespeare, from July 5th – 28th at Camosun College and August 2nd-4th at Saxe Point.

 

PERICLES

 

Shakespeare’s Pericles, Prince of Tyre, launches onto the high seas of the Mediterranean, full of music, magic, and pirates. Both fugitive and castaway, Pericles’ fate depends on an ultimate test of faith: before he can reclaim his family, his kingdom, and even the favor of a Goddess, he must endure the death of those he holds most dear.

 

PLEASE NOTE: This production contains mature themes and sexual content. Audience discretion is advised.

 

July 5th-28th at Camosun College Lansdowne Campus

Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday Nights at 7:30pm

 

THE TEMPEST

 

After twelve years of exile on a remote island, Prospera, a powerful sorceress and once Duchess of Milan, brings her enemies – including schemers, bumbling clowns, old friends and new love — to the isle with a mighty storm. What revenge will she take? The Tempest, Shakespeare’s last play, is a stirring fairy tale about vengeance, the power of love, and the quest for forgiveness.

 

This production is suitable for the whole family!
