Shakespeare at the Rock – The Merchant of Venice


Thursday, August 17, 2017


The Rock Gardens
1185 York Blvd
Hamilton, ON L0R 2H9

Money makes the world go 'round: Portia has it. Bassanio wants it. Shylock lends it. Antonio owes it – and it will cost him dearly. Dark in its humour and bawdy in its romantic hijinks, The Merchant Of Venice takes audiences on a journey of love, mercy and (in)justice.

The historic Rock Garden provides the perfect atmosphere for a night of inspiring theatre under the stars. Don’t miss out on this highly physical and creative variation presented by Burlington’s own Tottering Biped Theatre.

Each performance will include a half hour intermission with garden tours available during that time.

Tickets are: Adult: $25.00, Senior(65+) / Student: $16.00, Child (4-12 years old): $10.00, Children (3 and under): Free

Dinner Show Packages are available.
