Antony and Cleopatra – PE Opera House 14 to 19 Feb 2012

The Port Elizabeth Shakespeare Society is celebrating 40 years of Shakespeare in the park by presenting the Port Elizabeth premiere of Shakespeare’s Antony & Cleopatra from 14 to 19 February at the Opera House – not the Mannville Open Air Theatre (more about this later).

Antony & Cleopatra appropriately opens on 14 February – Valentines day – and offers couples a unique and romantic evening at the theatre.

The run is from 14 to 19 February in the PE Opera House and performances will take place nightly at 7:00 pm with an additional 3:00 pm matinee on Sunday 19 February. Ticket prices are R25.00 and R50.00.

  • Schools can book with Helen Wilkins on 041 511 789.
  • Block book 10 or more tickets with Rocky Mann: 084 560 0912.
  • Individual tickets can be purchased on the night at the door

Sadly, the production will not take place in Mannville, as the park venue has been vandalized making it almost impossible to be used this year. The PE Opera house has come to the rescue and has made the Main Theatre available for one week so that the anniversary celebration can go ahead as planned.
