Shakespeare in the Park - August 5th

Come join me for a preview of the play we'll be performing this year. Original Practice Shakespeare, a local performance group, will be doing Twelfth Night at Laurelhurst Park on August 5th at 2:00. I will be there by 12:30 to get seats and enjoy a picnic in the sun. Bring a blanket or beach chairs to sit on and enjoy some time together.

"OPS Fest brings a new style of Shakespearean performance to the Portland area by reviving the old.
First Folio editions of Shakespeare's plays include all the cues an actor needs to perform his or her role without rehearsal. This allows the truest reaction to the story as it progresses. OPS Fest performs using the same techniques as they did in Shakespeare's own time, which means limited rehearsal; an onstage prompter; fast paced, energetic acting; and lots of audience interaction. This lends a much more immediate, organic and improvisational feel."  ~
