Shakespeare in the Park

Shakespeare’s plays were first presented 400 years ago in open-air theaters such London’s Globe. Maybe that’s why they work so well in the great outdoors, as evidenced by Cincinnati Shakespeare Company’s engaging Shakespeare in the Park performances in parks all over Greater Cincinnati during August. 

You’ll find concise evening productions of the humorous Midsummer Night’s Dream and the romantic tragedy Romeo and Juliet this week at Burnet Woods in Clifton, Colerain Park and Vinoklet Winery in Colerain, Keehner Park in West Chester, President’s Park in Edgewood and Uptown Park in Oxford. Free. 

Shows start between 6 and 7 p.m. Check cincyshakes.com for details.
