Since 2010, a small team of local actors has been bringing short comedic Shakespeare scenes to the New Mexico Rail Runner Express each summer. The ever-popular Shakespeare on the Rail is back again, with performances on June 9, 16, and 23!

On June 9, 16 and 23, passengers on the #704 northbound and #705 southbound trains will be treated to half-hour performances from three of Shakespeare’s plays, Midsummer Night's DreamComedy of Errors, and Romeo and Juliet. The performances are always highly comedic, physical, and family-friendly. Shakespeare on the Rail brings quality Shakespeare scenes to the Rail Runner, building community excitement for local theater and spreading the experience of riding to new patrons.
