Shakespeare returning to Burlington’s Royal Botanical Gardens this summer


Published May 11, 2022 at 11:40 am

After a two-year pandemic-related hiatus, Burlington’s Royal Botanical Gardens is bringing back Shakespeare in the Garden.

King Henry Five is a retelling of three William Shakespeare plays — Henry IV, pts. 1 and 2 and Henry V – a powerful story about community, family and legacy.

Set in modern times, the Driftwood Theatre Group production features seven original songs.

Tickets are being sold on a “pay what you can afford” basis, starting at around $7. If you are feeling charitable, there is a “pay it forward” ticket for $75 that will allow Driftwood to donate two free tickets to people in the community who might not otherwise have access to professional theatre.

In addition, add-ons include the ability to rent a chair or cushion for the event or arrange a picnic for two, supplied by RBG.

The four shows are all at 7:30 p.m. on Aug. 18-21.

For information or to purchase tickets, visit the RBG website.
