A Tale of Love…for big ideas, for delicious words, and for that special someone!

The King of Navarre has sworn to give up the pleasures of the world for serious study and contemplation. But when the Princess of France arrives, exuberant frivolity triumphs over studious drudgery and the whole town erupts in pursuit of what (and who) they love!

But how often do we fall short of our ideals! What happens when we fail to listen? Love can still win, but a price must be paid…

By popular demand, Elm Shakespeare returns to the less well-known plays.  Chock full of witty wordplay, music, dance and riotous mishaps, Love’s Labour’s Lost marks the start of Shakespeare’s most lyrical comedies.  Set at the dawn of Jazz with live music before and throughout the performance, Elm’s production promises to be as luscious in language and look as Edgerton Park itself, while posing questions about consent, class, and a woman’s role in the political arena. A treat for the whole family, Love’s Labour’s Lost promises riotous mishaps, quirky characters, and another great summer of theater under the stars - free for everyone
