Shakespeare by the Sea presents “A Comedy of Errors.”
“A classic Shakespearean romp of mistaken identity-it’s mischief and mayhem galore!
Two young visitors arrive in the city unaware that their long-lost twins already live there. Over the course of a single day, everything that can go wrong does go wrong: a marriage at breaking point, a missing gold chain, an unpaid debt, and a dubious arrest.”
I’ve enjoyed several of the plays SBTS presented at the Pt Fermin, San Pedro location, but they also perform throughout SoCal. This free performance is at a park in Beverly Hills. It’s a chance to enjoy a well-acted, play outdoors and bring your own picnic. (Since it’s a city park, I’d refrain from bringing adult beverages).
The flat grassy area behind the recreation facility. Metered parking available in the parking lot and around the entire park. Bring your own chairs and blankets. Check the local weather.
Roxbury Park is a popular spot for a multitude of recreational activities. It sits on over 11 acres of lovely maintained green space. Please read parking signs carefully for metered parking.

Things to Bring https://www.shakespearebythesea.org/wp/things-to-bring/
As all of our performances are in outdoor venues, we’ve compiled a handy list that will make the most of your experience.
Your family and friends – it’s a great way to spend time with people you love.
Sweatshirt – most venues are on the coast and it gets damp and chilly. (Pants, closed toed shoes and layered clothing strongly recommended)
Blankets – one to sit on and one to wrap up in.
Low slung chair – Point Fermin is the only venue that has bench seating available – the other venues have grassy hills and/or amphitheaters. Seating is on a first-come, first served basis.
Picnics/Snacks – we do offer coffee, hot chocolate and a variety of sweets at our performances.
$5 to participate in our Raffle.
Donations are also gratefully accepted at the end of each performance.
Shakespeare by the Sea (SBTS) is a nonprofit organization that was launched in 1998 by Producing Artistic Director Lisa Coffi. Partnerships with local city organizations enabled us to offer performances for free. The first season was tremendously successful – over 3,000 people attended the nine performances at what was then an unused facility in the park.
Since then, SBTS has blossomed. We now present a repertory season that runs for 10 weeks – 4 weeks in San Pedro and 6 weeks in venues throughout LA, Orange and Ventura Counties.
