Shakespeare in the Park

During August, six actors from the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company have toured to parks across the region with Macbeth and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Both shows have more than six roles, so quick changes of costume and characters are part of the evening, making it all the more fascinating to watch. Productions are reduced in length to about two hours, but all the essentials remain — witches and warriors in the tragedy, faeries and clowns in the comedy. 


Catch final 7 p.m. performances Wednesday in Hamilton (RiversEDGE Amphitheatre, 116 Dayton St.), Thursday in Colerain (Colerain Park, 4725 Springdale Road) and Friday at Eden Park’s Seasongood Pavilion (950 Eden Park Drive). Free. cincyshakes.com.
