The Seattle Shakespeare Company will be performing Hamlet, one of Shakespeare’s most famous plays, in parks in the Seattle area this summer. The performances are free to attend, although donations are welcomed.

If Hamlet is a little too heavy for you, they will also be doing one of Shakespeare’s comedies, Love’s Labours Lost. You can see the plays in July and August. For locations and times, check the schedule.

If that’s not enough theater for you, you can also go to the Seattle Outdoor Theater Festival at Volunteer Park on July 9 and 10. (Pro tip: Lake View Cemetery is right next to Volunteer Park, so you can also go visit Bruce Lee’s grave—李小龙的墓碑.) There will be sixteen (!) plays performed in those two days. Again, this is a totally free event, but they do accept donations.
