Every summer, the New Swan Theatre at UCI (Gateway Commons, Inner Ring Road) assembles a 15-ton portable showplace, modeled after the Globe Theatre from Shakespeare’s time, where two of the Bard’s works are mounted and performed in repertory.

The portable theater is built from recycled materials and designed and constructed by the in-house faculty and staff of the UC Irvine Claire Trevor School of the Arts.

This year’s performances are “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” and “The Winter’s Tale.”

The productions will be staged alternatively throughout August.

Tickets range from $10-$50 and can be purchased by clicking here.

NOTE:  The festival will honor Blaze Bernstein, a Lake Forest college student who was stabbed to death in January, with a free performance of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” at 8 p.m. Aug. 21 for students of the Orange County School of the Arts.
