Celebrating its 32nd year, San Francisco Shakespeare Festival brings its performance of “The Taming of the Shrew” to Downtown Redwood City for 3 weekends in August!
Welcome to Renaissance-era Padua, Italy, where two very unconventional people meet, fight, and finally fall in love – but not before a feast of wit and outrageous physical comedy. “The Taming of the Shrew” features plenty of your favorite Shakespearean twists, hilarious clowns and ridiculous disguises, along with a subversive and challenging love story. Who is the bigger Shrew? You decide! Bring a picnic, a blanket, and the whole family to enjoy FREE professional theatre in a beautiful park setting.
Don’t miss our Green Show, a half hour before showtime – a great introduction to the play for all ages!
Shakespeare in the Park will offer 3 evening shows on Saturdays and 3 afternoon shows on Sundays while providing an opportunity for everyone to see high quality, professional theater in the relaxing setting of Sequoia Campus, free of charge.

Free Shakespeare in the Park provides an opportunity for everyone to see high quality, professional theater at no cost.
