In celebration of the Forest Theater's Centennial season, and the 100+ year tradition of Shakespeare at Carmel's historic outdoor stage, PacRep Theatre presents the bard’s most perfect romantic comedy, Twelfth Night. Kenneth Kelleher directs this chaotic tale that begins with a shipwreck which separates twins ‘Viola’ and ‘Sebastian’. But tragedy quickly turns to comedy when they wash up in a land turned upside-down by love. With raucous antics, ravishing language and rich characters – like the lovesick Duke Orsino, the ridiculous servants Malvolio, Maria and Feste, and social climbers Sir Toby Belch and Sir Andrew Aguecheek – Shakespeare creates a bittersweet tale of laughter and longing, mistaken identity, practical jokes and chaotic love.

Insider Tips:

  • Doors open 90- minutes prior to show time and we encourage attendees to arrive at least 60-minutes prior for the best seating selection - although all of the seats in the 500-seat auditorium are good.
  • Pack your own food and beverages, we actually encourage it. We always have desserts and drinks available for sale.
  • Bring a jacket or sweater and blanket.   
  • Bring a seat cushion for the wood benches.   
  • Take advantage of our “Two for One – Sweet Thursday” discount offered on general admission tickets for regular Thursday night performances throughout the run at the Outdoor Forest Theater.  
  • The Outdoor Forest Theater is located at the corner of Mountain View and Santa Rita Street, in Carmel-by-the-Sea.
  • The parking lot - it is very small so the majority of our attendees park on the street in the neighborhood surrounding the theater. You may want to bring a flash light at night.

Showings are Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at 7:30 PM, through October 16th at the Outdoor Forest Theater. Regularly priced adult tickets are $36, Seniors 65+ are $26 Students/Teachers/Military are $16 and children under 12 are $8.
