We went to "12th Night" with low expectations having never been to the Garden Grove Festival Amphitheater before or ever seen this company of Shakespeare players. We were pleasantly surprised. The actors were first rate and the venue is a charming...continued

Well done as always. We had a great time. Shakespeare in the Park has become a regular part of our summers.

Shakespeare OC , as usual, did a fine production. Twelfth Night is such a fun show and it looked like the actors had a blast doing it. Voices at the beginning were a bit weak, but picked up as the show progressed. Am looking forward to the next...continued

Wonderful performance...... Nice venue......

Please, always include information about parking. We ended up parking blocks away and then find out that we could have parked in the lot of the church across the street!!!!

If you see only one summer theater event, SEE THIS ONE! This is an absolutely great professional production of Shakespeare's craziest comedy in a very-cool outdoor amphitheater in (of all places) Garden Grove. 18 or 19 actors in excellent costumes...continued

Great show! The story, characters, and comedy were so clear and fun that even my 8 year old son followed everything and loved the show. Kudos to the Bradacs and the whole company for making the show relevant for today's audiences. You bring forth...continued

Really fun experience. Acting was great and the performers seemed to really enjoy being on stage. My first time at this venue in many years. I forgot what a delightful place it is.

An avid Shakespeare fan, I found this play quite trite, boring actually, with little of the rich, evocative language of some of the better-known plays. The storyline was uninspired. Not one of the better plays.

I see at least one Shakespeare at the Festival Amphitheater every summer. This production of Twelfth Night is among the most enjoyable yet. A superb and lovely cast, all with a clear understanding of that special Shakespearian style of language,...continued

If you happened to see the Twelfth Night at Chapman College this spring, you might wonder if Tom Bradoc would be presenting the same show. As I intensely disliked that production, I was quite apprehensive about this show. My fears were...continued

Directions were good. Location was great. Ticket pickup was no problem. Enjoyed picnicking and pre-show prior to play. Play was wonderful.

Don't really need to pay extra for reserved seating, not a bad seat in the house! The show before was fantastic, just make sure you ask where to go, because you definitely don't want to miss it.Feel free to bring a blanket, and be prepared for...continued
