Shakespeare by the Sea presents "The Tempest"

Wilson Park

2200 Crenshaw Blvd, Torrance, 90505

8:00pm

Brought ashore by the winds of Tempest and the force of Magic, Shakespeare’s troupe of island castaways spin a plot of treachery and deceit that only love can conquer. Whirling with conspiracy and intrigue, murderous intent and comic bumbling, the island is set for one last hurrah that is the Bard’s triumphant departure, stage left. “We are such stuff as dreams are made on, and our little life is rounded with a sleep.”

For audiences seeking quality, family entertainment, Shakespeare by the Sea's free performances can't be beat. Pack a picnic, a blanket and beach chair, gather loved ones, and settle in under the stars for a night of classic entertainment. The tales are timeless, the admission ticketless, and the experience priceless.

ADMISSION IS FREE

Movie Under the Guns

Battleship IOWA

250 S. Harbor Blvd., San Pedro, 90731

8:00pm to 10:00pm

Bring the entire family on board Battleship IOWA for “Movie Under The Guns.” This month’s movie will be the 1993 Steven Spielberg action adventure classic “Jurassic Park.”

In this first installment of the Jurassic Park file series, a billionaire philanthropist and genetic scientist have created a wildlife park out of cloned dinosaurs. During a preview tour, the theme park suffers a major power breakdown that allows its cloned dinosaur exhibits to run amok. Based on the novel by Michael Crichton, the film was directed by Spielberg and stars Sam Neill, Laura Dern, Jeff Goldblum, Richard Attenborough, and computer generated dinosaurs you’d swear are real. Film is rated PG-13.

The movie is FREE and will be held outdoors on the ship’s fantail. Limited seating is available. Guests are encouraged to dress appropriately, bring light jackets, blankets and outdoor chairs. Concessions will be available, no coolers or outside food and beverages allowed.

Shakespeare by the Sea presents "As You Like It" 0801

Wilson Park

2200 Crenshaw Blvd, Torrance, 90505

8:00pm

Love knows no rules and plot follows no formula in Shakespeare’s pastoral set play. Mistaken identity and intrigue take center stage in this comedy beneath the trees of the Forest of Arden. "All the world's a stage," wrote the Bard, and that stage comes to life as good Duke Senior lives an idyllic life as a castaway of the court...along with those with enough folly to flee their lives of luxury for dirt and trees. Into the forest come more outcasts: a girl dressed as a boy, a girl dressed as a different girl, and a fool who will fancy a country girl, while capturing the imagination of the melancholy Jacques. Girls will find boys, brother will save brother, and usurper will face the usurped. And it will all turn out As You Like It.

For audiences seeking quality, family entertainment, Shakespeare by the Sea's free performances can't be beat. Pack a picnic, a blanket and beach chair, gather loved ones, and settle in under the stars for a night of classic entertainment. The tales are timeless, the admission ticketless, and the experience priceless.
