Much Ado About Sebastapol—top off the summer Shakespeare season with a very special Renaissance Faire

All over America, summer is Shakespeare season. Here in San Francisco, opportunities include Hamlet at Cal Shakes in Orinda, a Hawaiian themed Midsummer Night’s Dream at Marin Shakespeare Company in San Rafael, Henry The Fifth presented by San Francisco Free Shakespeare and Twelfth Night at the Hyde Street Pier by We Players. It is a feast of the bard every summer.

And for desert? Why not check out Much Ado About Sebastopol, a relatively new entry (three years) on the Renaissance Faire circuit. It is being presented this weekend as a fundraiser for the Sebastapol public schools.

This event includes all the usual Renaissance fanfare: themed parades, wandering musicians, jugglers, fortune tellers, storytellers, Shakespeare (in person!) and an appearance by Queen Elizabeth.
