Posted By on January 10, 2019

Southwest Shakespeare Company will close out its main stage season with two of Shakespeare’s most enduring and important works on Feb. 23 at the Mesa Arts Center.

The company will present “As You Like It,” a romantic comedy directed by SSC’s new Artistic Director, Quinn Mattfeld. It will also “The Taming of the Shrew” starring Mattfeld and his wife Betsy Mugavero.

Both plays will be presented in repertory at the Mesa Arts Center’s Piper Auditorium using the company’s innovative Jacobean facade set piece.

General Admission ticket price is $25, and premium Seating is $35. Students, Educators, and audience members under 25 years-of-age are $13.
