Fans of Drunk History and all its slurred education will fall over laughing at Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare, where an entirely serious Shakespeare play is performed with one entirely inebriated cast member. For the last eight years, Sh*t-Faced Shakespeare has been performed in the darkest corners and diviest bars in the U.K., and the cast is now bringing the good time to Austin. Side-splitting, raucous and completely interactive, this show enjoyed sell-out runs at the Edinburgh and Brighton Fringe festivals, where a cast member drinks beer, wine and whiskey on stage, drunkenly sings the Dawson’s Creek theme song and occasionally (accidentally, of course) bares a nipple or two. Brush up on your Bard knowledge and head over to Spider House for a drunken twist on Romeo and Juliet, because this is Shakespeare as you never knew you wanted to see him before.
Ladies and gentlemen, children of all ages, step right up to witness the one and only Venardos Circus. Created by former Ringling Bros.

Now you and your family can delight in a truly authentic circus experience under a gorgeous and intimate Big Top tent, witnessing aerialists, acrobats, juggling and daredevil acts from around the world. There’ll also be plenty of ridiculous antics and Venardos’ own Broadway-style singing and dancing with this all-new production for all ages to enjoy at Buck’s Backyard. An interactive pre-show party begins one hour before show time, with opportunities to meet the cast, snap selfies and play games.
