Neighborhood favorite Something for Nothing Theater will celebrate its fifth anniversary by presenting Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale. The annual tradition of Shakespeare at Ramsey Park continues in 2016 with this lovely fairytale. A production with minimal props, costumes, and lighting, focusing on storytelling and the wonderful language of Shakespeare, The Winter’s Tale blends elements of tragedy and comedy.
A jealous king, a young couple striving against class boundaries, a scheming rogue, and a pursuing bear take the stage in this late Shakespearean play. Music, dance, and magic draw the audience in. Winter’s Tale shows Shakespeare at his career’s culmination and reflects decades of practice in creating compelling stories and fascinating characters. Bring a blanket or chair, pack some snacks, and head to Ramsey Park for a two-hour performance of this riveting tale!
The Winter’s Tale takes place at Ramsey Park Picnic Pavilion, Thursdays – Saturdays, June 9-11, 16-18, and 23-25, 2016, beginning at 8:00 p.m. All shows are free and open to the public.
