An annual summer tradition, join Theatre Calgary as it presents The Two Gentlemen of Verona as this year’s Shakespeare by the Bow production.

Theatre Calgary works with emerging actors and theatre talent for this annual outdoor show. Long believed to be one of Shakespeare’s earliest works, The Two Gentlemen of Verona tells the tale of friendship between Proteus and Valentine who fall in and out of bromance over and over again. With an 80s aesthetic, this silly comedy features adventure, outlaws, and even a dog.

Catch Shakespeare by the Bow June 29 to August 19, 2018 at Prince’s Island Park (698 Eau Claire Ave. SW). Tickets are pay-what-you-can and the full performance schedule can be found at
