Ophelia’s Jump offers extra Shakespeare performances, price cut
During the recent storm, Ophelia’s Jump—which is in the midst of its annual Midsummer Night’s Shakespeare festival—had two performances rained-out. In order to make up for lost revenue and to offer a break to theater-lovers, the nonprofit Claremont repertory company has added two performances. Tickets for each extra show cost $15.
The tragedy “Titus Andronicus” will be presented tonight, Tuesday, July 21 at 8 p.m. This revenge play is among Shakespeare’s goriest offerings, so it may not be appropriate for younger viewers or squeamish playgoers. Shakespeare’s beloved comedy “The Twelfth Night” will be performed Wednesday, July 22, also at 8 p.m.
Tickets for regular performances are $22 to $25. Or you can get a ticket to both shows for $40. Regular performances of “Twelfth Night” will be held on Friday, July 24 and Sunday, July 26. Regular performances of “Titus Andronicus” are set for Thursday, July 23 and Saturday, July 25 at 8 p.m.
All shows are al fresco affairs, taking place in Pomona College’s beautiful Sontag Greek Theatre. For tickets and information, visit www.opheliasjump.org or call (909) 541-5850.
