Portland Actors Ensemble performs Shakespeare

Portland Actors Ensemble has brought the Bard to local audiences for over 40 years. This summer they present performances of two of Shakespeare's plays, The Merchant of Venice and The Tale of Cymbeline, from the outdoor stage on the beautiful grounds of the historic Marylhurst University campus just south of Lake Oswego.

Bring a blanket, beach or lawn chair and a picnic dinner and enjoy theater on the green. 

The performances are FREE and open to the public.

The Merchant of Venice
Saturday, July 20, 6:00 p.m.
Lajos Balogh Performance Shell

PAE offers as its ninth annual twilight tragedie, The Merchant of Venice. Believed to have been written between 1596 and 1598, The Merchant of Venice is a tragic comedy. Though sharing some aspects with his other romantic comedies, the play is perhaps best known for its dramatic scenes. Director: Bruce A. Hostetler. More about PAE's The Merchant of Venice.

The Tale of Cymbeline
Saturday, August 3, 6:00 p.m.
Lajos Balogh Performance Shell

Based on legends of early Celtic British King Cunobelinus, modern critics often classify Cymbeline as a romance. Like Othello and The Winter's Tale, it deals with the themes of innocence and jealousy. Director: Douglas Lay. More about PAE's Cymbeline.
