The company opened the two-night summer run last Thursday night with “The Winter’s Tale!,” by William Shakespeare, a saga that tells the tale of  a jealous King Leontes, who believes his pregnant wife Hermione and his good friend King Polixenes are in love.

Performances remain admission free, but Coffi urged audience members to make a contribution in support of the actors put up and take down the sets before and after each production.
