In the final scene of Ibsen’s 1879 groundbreaking masterwork, A Doll’s House, Nora Helmer makes the shocking decision to leave her husband and children, and begin a life on her own. This climactic event—when Nora slams the door on everything in her life—instantly propelled world drama into the modern age.
In A Doll’s House, Part 2, many years have passed since Nora’s exit. Now, there’s a knock on that same door. Nora has returned. But why? And what will it mean for those she left behind?
Tickets start at $30 for regular performances and $18 for Preview Performances and Senior Matinees. Show schedule is Wednesdays – Saturdays at 7:30pm, and Saturdays and Sundays at 2pm.

Whether you live here or you’re vacationing here during Christmas week, it can be overwhelming trying to decide from among all of the fun holiday offerings happening in the Orlando area.
Here are our picks for the best Holiday events for celebrating Christmas 2018 in Orlando:
Orlando Shakes, in partnership with UCF, will kick off its 30th Season with a production of Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights from September 5 – October 7, 2018.
In the Heights tells the universal story of a vibrant community in New York’s Washington Heights neighborhood – a place where the coffee from the corner bodega is light and sweet, the windows are always open and the breeze carries the rhythm of three generations of music. It’s a community on the brink of change, full of hopes, dreams, and pressures, where the biggest struggles can be deciding which traditions you take with you, and which ones you leave behind.
Orlando Shakes in partnership with UCF invites guests to celebrate the opening of their 2018-2019 Season at their 30th Anniversary Season Gala on Sunday, September 16, 2018.
The highlight of the evening will be a one-night-only musical showcase featuring select members of the cast of Orlando Shakes’ production of In the Heights.
Orlando Shakespeare Theater has announced it has changed and shortened its name to “Orlando Shakes,” as a way to better represent the theater’s mission and diverse body of work.
As the theater company, in partnership with UCF, has evolved over the last 30 years, the Board of Directors felt that a fresh brand direction was needed to encompass the breadth of the company’s productions.
Orlando Shakespeare Theater (Orlando Shakes) in Partnership with UCF has announced the upcoming productions for their 2018-2019 season, which is also its 30th Anniversary Season.
Orlando Shakes’ season opens in September 2018 with the multi-Tony Award-winning hip hop musical, Lin-Manuel Miranda’s In the Heights. It received four 2008 Tony Awards including Best Orchestrations, Best Musical and Best Score.
Orlando Shakespeare Theater, in partnership with UCF, presents William Shakespeare’s comedy, Love’s Labour’s Lost, from February 22 – March 24, 2017.
Love’s Labour’s Lost follows the misadventures of the King of Navarre and his three companions as they attempt to forswear all pleasures in favor of serious study. But the Princess of France and her all-too-lovely entourage have other ideas.
Orlando Shakespeare Theater, in partnership with UCF, presents F. Scott Fitzgerald’s literary masterpiece, The Great Gatsby, from February 8 – March 26, 2017
When Nick Carraway is befriended by his mysterious neighbor, Jay Gatsby, he is drawn into a glitzy world of lavish parties and secret speakeasies. But as Gatsby’s elusive past is uncovered and his intentions revealed, Nick finds himself a pawn in a love triangle so scandalous, it threatens to destroy all those around him.
Orlando Shakespeare Theater in Partnership with UCF presents Stuart Little, select dates from October 25 to November 16.
Based on the celebrated children’s book by E.B. White, Stuart Little is an extraordinary mouse born into an ordinary New York City human family.
Normally the Orlando Science Center is fun for all ages, but on select nights, it’s reserved strictly for adults 21+. That night is Science Night Live and it returns August 20.
This edition will feature the digital art show Sensorium – Exhibition of Interactive Sound + Art Installations, a once-in-a-lifetime performance by Orlando Shakes performing a “West Side Story Cover Battle” (Lip-Sync Battle meets Carpool Karaoke), presentations from Microsoft, Mindbender Mansion, and so much more.
One of the most outrageously funny musicals produced in recent years is Monty Python’s SPAMALOT and Orlando Shakespeare Theater has chosen it to kick off their 2015-2016 season.
I caught one of the preview performances last week, and I have to say they chose wisely. It’s a wonderful production of the wacky, bawdy, and exhuberant stage version of the classic film, Monty Python and the Holy Grail.
