JUL 2 - SEP 6, 2015
A case of mistaken identity ends in hilarity. A case of mistaken intent results in war. Canadian Stage returns to Toronto’s High Park for its 33rd season with two of Shakespeare’s great "Roman" plays on alternating nights throughout the summer: the fast-moving, delightful The Comedy of Errors, and the classic tragedy, Julius Caesar. With two directors, the most recent graduates of the York University-Canadian Stage MFA program, and one sparkling cast, you have two opportunities to take in this summer tradition under the stars in the High Park Amphitheatre.

“Shakespeare in High Park [is] an indispensable summer fixture”

This general admission event is free for children 14 and under. Adults may make a pay-what you-can donation with cash, debit or credit cards at the gate. The suggested minimum donation is $20 per-person. Food, beverages and cushions are available for purchase.


Reserve a premium spot in advance

When reserving in advance, there’s no need to show up early to snag a spot (but of course you’re still welcome to arrive at 6pm and enjoy a picnic on the hill). Plus you’re guaranteed a premium view for your preferred performance. To reserve a cushion in the Premium zone in advance, pick a specific date, make an online $25 per-ticket donation, and we’ll save you a spot. Seating is first come, first served within the Premium zone. Print out and present your tickets at the gate on your selected date and you’re set!

Getting to the High Park Amphitheatre

Plan to arrive early by allowing ample travel time during the increased activity this summer during the Pan Am/Parapan Am Games. This applies particularly when using alternative transportation on these performance dates when there is no vehicle access to High Park:

Friday, July 24: The Comedy of Errors
Saturday, July 25: Julius Caesar
Friday, August 7: The Comedy of Errors

High Park is located in Toronto's west end, stretching from Bloor Street West in the north to The Queensway in the south and from Parkside Drive in the east to Ellis Avenue in the west. High Park is easily accessible by foot, bicycle, TTC or car. However, parking in High Park is extremely limited.

The Amphitheatre is located just east of Grenadier Restaurant, towards the centre of the park.

Lawn chairs are not allowed in the regular seating area of the hill. A limited number of spots at the rear of the hill are available exclusively for lawn chairs. Seating is on a first come, first served basis.
