Summer 2018 Shakespeare in the Cannery

Five years ago the historic cannery walls became the backdrop of the first Cannery play, Romeo and Juliet. We celebrated our final season this summer with Shakespeare in Love. Our solar-powered, outdoor theater is a monument to community-driven performance art. Shakespeare in the Cannery is a cultural arts project of the Arlene Francis Center.
