Hartke Theatre presents Shakespeare's controversial play The Merchant of Venice. Themes of humanity, dignity, revenge, cruelty, religion and greed are all explored in the character of Shylock, a vengeance-seeking moneylender who is one of Shakespeare's most tragic figures. The clever and well-spoken Portia is also one of his most prominent heroines, whose intelligence shines every bit as brightly as her beauty. See this classic tale that shows the tenacity of young people in love and calls into question the prejudices and beliefs of Renaissance-era Venice. Learn More

It is wonderful to have the opportunity to see a classic play from another era. This one was excellently staged and costumed, and the acting was very good. Overall, the presentation and the dialogue flowed smoothly; there were many witty lines and these were well-delivered. The play was a bit "campy", but I rather suspect that that is just the way it was intended to be presented at the French court.
Hartke Theatre is comfortable, cold drinks and munchies are available, and parking was easy right outside the theatre on-street.
All in all, it was a most enjoyable event.
