St. Louis Shakespeare Festival: Twelfth Night
Until June 25
Often regarded as William Shakespeare’s greatest comedy, Twelfth Night is bursting with romance, music and high times. This year’s Shakespeare in the Park sets Viola and her twin brother – shipwrecked, separated and finding their way in a strange, new land – in glamorous, celebrity-filled Miami. In a world of appearances, not everyone is who they seem, but love is love in this glorious, Latin-inflected story of longing and reinvention. Part of the St. Louis Shakespeare Festival, all performances are free and open to the public, so grab a lawn chair, pack a picnic and find a spot on the grass of Shakespeare Glen in Forest Park.
June 1 to 25
Beginning this weekend, Circus Flora enters the daring world of espionage! With nods to beloved spy stories, Undercover introduces the world’s top double agent, who faces an archvillain obsessed with world domination. Our spy has plenty of helpful allies – but the villain has a team, too. Will good overcome bad . . . and how? At The Big Top in the Grand Center Arts District, aerialists, acrobats, contortionists and comedians will craft this thrilling story, which will captivate your whole family.
Craft Beer Hobnob
Held at Schlafly Bottleworks in Maplewood, the Craft Beer Hobnob will spotlight 40 breweries from the Missouri Craft Brewers Guild. Each brewery – think 4 Hands Brewing Co., Boulevard Brewing Co., Melvin Brewing Eureka, Mother’s Brewing Co., Narrow Gauge Brewing Co., Side Project Brewing and Urban Chestnut Brewing Co. – will bring at least two of its signature beers to the festival. Guests can enjoy unlimited samples, along with live music and food that pairs perfectly with the suds. You also get to take home a keepsake tasting glass!
Enjoy Illinois 300
June 3 and 4
Enjoy Illinois 300, a NASCAR Cup Series race, will return to World Wide Technology Raceway on June 3 and 4, along with the Confluence Music Festival from June 2 to 4. In its second year, the music festival will showcase innovation, talent and live entertainment. Over the weekend, approximately 30 local, regional and national acts, including headliner Dierks Bentley, will perform on multiple stages. Tickets include access to mouthwatering food and beverage vendors, interactive entertainment displays, a STEAM education showcase, display cars, interviews with local sports legends and a seat for the race.
Having sold more than 100 million records, Shania Twain is the best-selling female artist in country music history and one of the best-selling music artists of all time. She will bring her Queen of Me tour to Hollywood Casino Amphitheatre in Maryland Heights on June 4.
