Shakespeare at Sunset Summer Theatre

June 1, 2010

Colorado State University's School of the Arts performs Shakespeare masterfully (as evidenced by its sold-out productions during the 2009 season)! This summer, a lighting designer from Cirque du Soleil in Las Vegas will help create a 'canopy of stars' inside the University Theatre, and CSU's directors, theatre designers, and actors will stage the Bard of Avon's masterpieces as only CSU can!

Colorado State University students perform in the 2009 production of A Midsummer Night's Dream.

The Bard's most enduring plays

Colorado State University Summer Theatre's Shakespeare at Sunset is back for the summer of 2010 with two of the Bard of Avon’s most enduring plays, Romeo and Juliet, directed by Eric Prince, and The Two Gentlemen of Verona, directed by Laura Jones
