Capital Classics Theatre Company enters its 22nd anniversary season with the staging of Twelfth Night; or, What You Will, as part of central Connecticut's longest-running Shakespeare festival, for three weekends: July 26 through August 12, 2012.
Twelfth Night is a tale of mistaken identity, separated twins, deflated ego, and gender-crossing disguise, all to overcome obstacles and find "true" love. The Festival will also feature pre-show entertainment, which includes the Elizabethan Consort, dance, lectures by local professors, and more.
Capital Classics has built a reputation for making Shakespeare accessible to the thousands of fans who turn out each summer with their families and friends—and picnic baskets—to enjoy outdoor "Shakespeare under the stars" on the grounds of the University of Saint Joseph, West Hartford, Connecticut.
Performances will be held on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays at 7:30 p.m. and Sundays at 5:30 p.m.
In keeping with our desire to serve the Greater Hartford community, we keep admission cost to a minimum. Tickets to the Shakespeare festival are $15 for adults and $10 for children. Group rates and other discounts are also available.
Three easy ways to get tickets:
- In person. At the Frances Driscoll Box Office at the University of Saint Joseph.

Tickets can always be purchased without reservations at the box office starting 60 minutes before our shows. Be sure to bring your blanket and picnic basket to really enjoy the outdoor experience. Snacks and drinks are also on sale before each performance and during the intermission.
Our shows always go on—rain or shine. If it rains, before or during the performance, we move inside the University's Hoffman Auditorium.
