Cal Shakes' Season of Shared Light

April 07, 2021

Cal Shakes, as it’s affectionately known, is devoted to bringing audiences both classics of the stage and innovative new works that challenge assumptions and break barriers.

Performances at the Bruns Amphitheater take place during the day in a solar-powered 545-seat outdoor stadium, tucked between the hills of Siesta Valley, just a short 15-minute drive from our hotel. The company’s state-of-the-art, wireless microphones mean that you can hear actors’ every word with crystal clarity from any seat in the house.

This year, Cal Shakes has chosen to share their beloved Bruns Amphitheater for the 2021 Season of Shared Light. Safety permitting, they will produce one play—The Winter’s Tale by William Shakespeare—and will share the space throughout the summer with an array of local arts organizations and community groups like Destiny Arts, Bandaloop, West Edge Opera, and others to be announced soon!

In the meantime, online and in-person programming is still available, including Shakespeare In-Depth with Philippa Kelly, the Direct Address series, and other performance and educational opportunities.
