Doors open at 5 pm.

The Commonwealth Shakespeare Company Apprentice Program presents Cymbeline, Shakespeare’s fairy-tale vision of a young girl’s struggle with an evil stepmother, false accusations and a gender-bent expedition to a war between nations.

The CSC Apprentice Program is an intensive summer training program for young actors who are actively pursuing a career in theatre. This eight-week training runs concurrently with CSC’s signature event, Shakespeare on the Common, founded in 1996 by Artistic Director Steve Maler’s vision that Shakespeare “belongs and should be accessible to everyone.”


Please note outside food and drink are not allowed in the Museum or the Courtyard.

Courtyard seating is limited; low lawn chairs (3’ or under when unfolded) and/or blankets are recommended. All bags are subject to inspection by Museum staff. Large bags, coolers, and tall chairs are not permitted. In case of inclement weather, the performance will move indoors to Remis Auditorium with doors opening at 6 pm.
