Event Description

The Classics at Brucemore began in 1996, launching outdoor theater in Eastern Iowa. The Classics celebrates a rich history of quality live theater, from Greek tragedy to Shakespearean comedy and 20th century American drama. Much more than a play performed outdoors, the Classics fully utilizes the site as the natural amphitheater provides a lush backdrop and the outdoor environment is incorporated into the action — actors emerge from the woods, get dunked in the pond, and help themselves to the audience’s picnics.

In 2019, Brucemore presents John Steinbeck's Of Mice and Men. Two drifters, George and his friend Lennie, dream of living off the land. They plan to earn enough money working at a ranch to buy their own place. Lennie is a little boy in the body of a man that doesn't know his own strength. What trouble will he run into as he meets others after the same dream? 

Bring a picnic and your favorite beverage to fully enjoy the Classics experience.
