Shakespeare on the Rail

Saturday, June 15, 2019

Passengers on the #704 northbound and #705 southbound trains will be treated to half-hour performances from three of Shakespeare’s plays.


Since 2010, a small team of local actors has been bringing Shakespeare scenes onto the Rail Runner every June. Fun props and street clothes help bring these short comedic scenes to life.

On June 1, 8 and 15, passengers on the #704 northbound and #705 southbound trains will be treated to half-hour performances from three of Shakespeare’s plays, The Merry Wives of Windsor, Romeo and Juliet, and A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
