In an effort to increase capacity in June, we also offer a limited number of tickets at the student group rate for evening previews.

Make the Most of Your Visit
We want your visit to Bard on the Beach to be the best it can be, so we’ve created two essential guides containing Everything You Need to Know: The Step by Step and The Details. These guides contain information on our updated booking process, ticket rates, payment deadlines, and general production and venue information.
Join us in the BMO Mainstage Tent for a pre-show workshop, led by actors from the Bard Company. The actors and students will delve into the world of the play, looking at the language, characters, and story to give them a powerful connection with the production. Students will have the opportunity to take turns participating in activities on the same stage they will see the production performed on later that day! We have limited space for these workshops, so you’ll want to submit your requests ASAP!
When: September 11 and 19 before the Student Matinee
Where: Bard on the Beach on the BMO Mainstage
Cost: FREE in 2019!
Booking: When requesting tickets for your Student Group, you can also submit a request to add-on a Lights Up pre-show workshop.
After submitting your request, our Education Coordinator will get in touch. If you have any questions, please contact Katie Johnstone at email@example.com.
Bring Bard to Your Classroom
A Shakesperience Schools Tour– FREE in 2019!
This program brings Shakespeare’s plays, language, and characters to life! Gather your students for a lively hour of our favourite Shakespeare speeches and scenes presented by our Riotous Youth Ensemble, including an interactive, 2-way Q&A. The schools tour runs from May 27 – June 14.
We can also bring Bard to you with a Bard in the Classroom workshop for students or a Professional Development workshop for teachers. Two professional teaching artists will come to your school for a participatory, performance-based exploration of Shakespeare’s text. Finally, check out Bard Youth Fest if you think your students would like to make Shakespeare their own, alongside other young people from across the Lower Mainland and beyond.
