From music to snacks to the popular Biggest Balcony Scene Ever, there's something for everyone— William Shakespeare himself will even be in attendance!
Join us at 12 pm in the Amphitheatre (or inside the Bennett Campus Center if it’s raining).
Here's a taste of what to expect:
Come dressed in your Shakespeare best! Prizes will be given to our favorite costumed Romeos and Juliets.
