Shakespeare on the Sound
Celebrates 22nd Season with Macbeth
Thursday, June 15 – Sunday, July 2, 7:30pm
Join friends and neighbors this June at a performance of Macbeth, Shakespeare on the Sound’s 22nd annual outdoor Shakespeare production in Pinkney Park for 16 performances. “Macbeth,” one of Shakespeare’s most popular and powerful tragedies, will examine the questions of ambition, political power, legitimacy and tyranny. The he design of the production will capitalize on the natural setting of Pinkney Park because so much of Macbeth is about the tension of the natural world and man-made political structures.
Tuesdays and Wednesdays are free with a suggested donation encouraged – $20 for adults, $10 for students and seniors. Admission on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays is $20 for adults, $10 for students and seniors and children 12 and under free. Reserved seating is available for $50 and Monday nights are dark.
Performances begin at 7:30pm. Bring your picnic and blanket and enjoy an evening of wonderful theatre with family and friends. You may set out your blanket or chairs to hold space any time after 4pm. Each night will also feature a pre-performance program for children at 6:30pm.
For more information, other events leading up to the production, to volunteer in the park this summer or just to get involved with your local Shakespeare Company, visit www.shakespeareonthesound.org, or call 203-299-1300.
