Season of Betrayal begins May 30

We are excited to start our 5th season on May 30th with The Winter’s Tale, Shakespeare’s magical tale of wrath and redemption, of loves lost and then found. It is a sure way to warm the heart. Our cast has been hard at work, battling our strange spring weather where we’ve had to rehearse indoors because it’s raining or cold, personal obstacles and time, always time! This cast is stellar and we’re thrilled to introduce them to you!

Not pictured: Sarah Palmero as Antigonus/Third Gentleman.

The Winter’s Tale runs May 30 – Jun 2 at Fremont Park in midtown Sacramento. Follow us on Facebook for up to the minute information.

We so enjoy what we do, and we enjoy sharing that with you, so please join us in the park this weekend…the weather will be beautiful!
