Celebrate the classics in a modern context with Shakespeare Walla Walla’s production of The Merchant of Venice, which takes the Gesa Power House Theatre stage for twelve performances, August 8-18. The Merchant of Venice shines a spotlight on themes of prejudice and redemption, timely and relevant even four-hundred years after the work was written. The Merchant of Venice will be performed in modern dress, set in the world of big business and flashy reality TV, examining our well-moneyed, celebrity-crazed Hollywood culture in Shakespeare’s beautiful language.
Doors open one hour before show time. Tickets are $9-$29 for reserved seating with special pricing available through FLEX ticket packages.
