Bard on the Beach extends its record-breaking 29th season with added shows?

VANCOUVER, BC - As a result of record-breaking demand for its '60s-inspired production of Shakespeare's romantic comedy As You Like It, Bard on the Beach's 29th season will be extended by a week to allow for added performances. The closing night for the Beatles-song-filled musical will now be on Friday, September 28, with four added performances in the extension week.

'This season has been an unprecedented hit. We're breaking all our attendance records, and all four of our plays have resonated with critics and patrons,' said Artistic Director Christopher Gaze. 'But As You Like It is a unique phenomenon. Its audiences are cheering with enthusiasm and excitement and it's become a huge favourite with people of all ages, and from dedicated Shakespeare fans to those who don't know Shakespeare at all! Performances are close to being sold out through September, and we want as many people as possible to experience the delights of this remarkable production. And we know a number of our patrons are seeing the show more than once! So we've made the decision to add shows, and extend our season by an extra week in Vanier Park (1000 Chestnut Street, Vancouver, BC) - a first for the Festival.'

Additional performances of As You Like It are scheduled for Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday evenings, Sept 25-28, at 7:30pm.

The Festival's productions of Macbeth, also on the BMO Mainstage, and Lysistrata, on the Howard Family Stage, will both close on Thursday, September 13. Closing night for Timon of Athens, on the Howard Family Stage, will be Sunday, September 9. Availability for some performances is very limited - check online or call the Bard Box Office.

For complete details on all the productions and upcoming special events (Bard-B-Q & Fireworks and Opera & Arias: Bold and Beautiful), as well as the revised schedule and to buy tickets, visit bardonthebeach.org or call the Bard Box Office at (604) 739-0559.
