Have you been to Bard on the Beach?

Kitsilano’s Vanier Park boasts several great attractions and chief among them is the Bard theatre for
Shakespeare. If you’re looking for things to do in kits, we would strongly suggest checking out this
theatre.


Who doesn’t love a good Shakespearean play? Shakespeare’s works have everything from comedy and
love to drama and betrayal.


Yes, we know, Shakespeare died over 400 years ago so why do we still care about his work? Shakespeare
incorporates a great blend of emotion, comedy and sarcasm into his works. He was a master at
understanding his audience and giving them stories and characters whom they can identify with. Really,
who wasn’t touched by Romeo and Juliet’s romantic tragedy?


Featuring the Production of Macbeth at Bard on the Beach

You may have seen the play before, or even read it in school, so why should you go see it outdoors at
the beach. Trust us, going to Bard on the Beach is not the same as sitting in the aisles of a regular
theatre. It’s so much better. For instance, you’re at a literal beach. Nothing beats the backdrop of this
stage performance, with the ocean and mountains to add to the mood. With stunning views and great
actors, it’s easy to become absorbed in the characters as you watch them struggle with power,
corruption and treachery. We’ve heard that this year’s Macbeth is one of the most intense productions
ever staged at Bard.


It’s one of Canada’s Largest Shakespeare Festivals

Bard on the Beach is celebrating its 29 th Season this year. Anything that has been around that long has to
be good and worth seeing. Situated under modern circus-style tents, this is a not-for-profit festival that
features professional Vancouver-based actors to showcase Shakespeare’s work.


Dates, times and tickets are all available on their website at www.bardonthebeach.org.
