Melbourne Shakespeare Company are renowned for holding their theatre events at the St Kilda Botanical Gardens, 12 Tennyson St, St Kilda. Having been to a couple of them, I can tell you it has always been a fun engaging event, and far better than you may have imagined. You just have to be well prepared for a comfortable experience. For instance, dress for the weather, take all the drinks and snacks you're going to need and don't forget to protect yourself from the weather/the sun. Having forgotten my sun hat at one such show, I was boiling hot sitting in direct heat, eyes squinting with no sunnies; so let that not be your fate.

The two upcoming events are The Merchant of Venice from 1-15 December at 7pm and you can get your tickets here ; and Outback Adventures from 9-23 December at 2pm and you can get your tickets here - both are at the St Kilda Botanical Gardens', The Rose Garden. Enter via corner Tennyson and Blessington.

The Merchant of Venice in a spellbinding adaptation combines the rich language of the iconic play with the vibrant energy of musical theatre guaranteed to give you a hilarious and unforgettable experience. In Melbourne Shakespeare Company's very own unique style, it'll be a combo of live music, larger-than-life characters and lots of laughs in this action-packed piece that'll run for 90 minutes with no interval.

Outback Adventures is a 60-minute family musical that follows the Wacky Wombat on a whimsical tale that champions environmental conservation and features a spread of characters that will inspire young audiences to protect the planet and make responsible choices; all while having a wonderful time of course. A production that educates and inspires, enjoy catchy songs, interactive moments and essential life lessons. For this event enter via Tennyson. The event and ticket pages will have more info; just make sure you book early for both shows so you don't miss out.


As you can see from the image below, due to popular demand, MSC has added more workshops. For more information on Scenes from Shakespeare - see here ; and for Comedy in Shakespeare - see here . Both events are also held at the St Kilda Botanical Gardens, 11 Herbert St (entry via corner Tennyson and Blessington), St Kilda. These 90 min workshops explore the skills and techniques used to perform Shakespearean text and take it from the page to the stage; and how to perform comedy in Shakespeare's plays in MSC's iconic style
