Programs & Events for Teens

Planning to attend one or more plays at Bard on the Beach this summer? Just a fan of Shakespeare, or completely new to his works? Drop in to one of our Shakespeare Discussion Clubs this spring, where we watch a film adaptation of one of Shakespeare’s plays, then discuss both the adaptation and original play afterwards. 
 
This month, we're showing: 
 
  • Chimes at Midnight (1965) 
    Wednesday, April 8 | 6:00pm-8:30 OR Thursday, April 9 | 2:00pm-4:30pm

    Sir John Falstaff is the hero in this compilation of extracts from Shakespeare’s Henry IV and other plays, made into a connected story of Falstaff’s career as young Prince Hal’s drinking companion. The massive knight roisters with and without the prince, philosophizes comically, goes to war (in his own fashion), and meets his final disappointment, set in a real-looking late-medieval England. Starring: Orson Welles, Keith Baxter, John Gielgud.
