2nd Annual Shakespeare by the Sea
Saturday, June 25th, 7:00 am – 11:00 pm
Point Fermen Park San Pedro, CA
If you have never been to Shakespeare by the Sea or maybe never heard of it here is the scoop. Shakespeare by the Sea is a free (yes you read correctly FREE) production of a Shakespeare play. This year’s performance will be “MUCH ADO ABOUT NOTHING”. The location is in Point Fermin Park in San Pedro. The show starts at 8:00 but come early (around 7:00) and join are picnic in the park before the play. Everyone is repsonsable for their own food and drink.
Getting to Point Fermin is easy. Just take the 110 South till it dead ends into Gaffey St. Turn Left and continue to head south on Gaffey till Gaffey dead ends into Point Fermin Park. The parking lot in the park is usually full so park in the lot across the street from the park. It will be on your right just before you enter the park.
Point Fermin Park is right on the ocean so it does get very chilly at night. A heavy sweatshirt or a coat is a must and a blanket will also help besides having something to lay down on the ground for the picnic. Bring a lawn chair for the show and in case we do not save any bench seats.
Finally if you are busy on June 25th but still think Shakespeare by the Sea sounds fun go to shakespearebythesea.org and check out the other shows not only in San Pedro but through out the South Bay, Orange County and Pasadena.
Hope to see you there.
