Experience the transformative power of theatre in our magical collection of shows for the 56th season. From its traditional roots to today’s most original works, Summer Circle’s magical line-up has something for everyone!
Experience a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical revue, a comedic Shakespeare troupe, a fizzy Noel Coward comedy, a hilariously dark late night comedy, and a world premiere musical for young audiences as part of FREE theatre in our accessible courtyard. This summer also includes our expanded programming before all shows and the free Summer Circle Theatre kids camp! Invite your friends and family to experience the magic of Summer Circle Theatre.
