So you may have missed it!
Don’t fret. Not to worry, Shakespeare by the Sea will make a return engagement to South Pasadena on August 2 when cast members from “The Merry Wives of Windsor” will be on stage in Garfield Park for a 7 p.m. performance.
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.
So, get ready for round two at the popular park in the city. Picnics are welcome and guests are encouraged to bring coolers, blankets and low sitting chairs to enjoy the show under the stars.
Produced by Artistic Director Lisa Coffi, Shakespeare by the Sea is a nonprofit organization that was launched in 1998. This summer, Shakespeare By the Sea will make 42 performances in 22 days.
Over the years, the nonprofit organization has blossomed and today presents a repertory season that runs for 10 weeks – four in San Pedro and six more in venues throughout LA and Orange counties.
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.
Garfield Park is at 1000 Park Avenue. For more information, contact the city’s Recreation Office at (626) 403-7380.
