Shakespeare in the Park: A Preview

A look at this weekend's Shakespeare in the Park event.



I just got back from a dress rehearsal of A Midsummer Night's Dream, which is being performed tonight and twice tomorrow as part of the Shakespeare in the Park event.

A limited number of tickets are available at the gate for tonight's show. Tomorrow's 1pm matinee and 6pm evening show also still have open seats.

Overall, the play -- as performed by the Northwest Classical Theatre Company and directed by Grant Turner -- is delightfully well done.

I previewed the production in this week's paper, but it was awesome to see the set and these actors in person. The stage is set perfectly amidst the trees of Drake Park, making for the sort of whimsical environment Shakespeare set out to create when he penned this classic comedy nearly 500 years ago.

Here is some video and more photos from today's rehearsal.
