South Park is my neighborhood- and for the last three years this neighborhood has shown its community spirit and hipness by presenting the Bard, for free- in the ‘hood. A good number of the actors and support people live in the neighborhood.
Consider yourself invited to this year’s production of Romeo and Juliet- updated to take place in America around the time of Dayton’s birth:
FAST FACTS ON SHAKESPEARE IN SOUTH PARK ROMEO AND JULIET
Dates: Fri-Sun, Sept 17-19, 2010
Time: 8 PM-11PM

Bring: A lawn chair or blanket
Admission: Free, donations accepted
or call (937) 603-4893 for information.

And, as a note- while the performance is free to attend, it isn’t free to produce. I’ll be there hawking for donations at the end of each show (it’s a talent I seem to have down well). Don’t feel obliged, but- if you enjoy Shakespeare under the stars- done by locals, and want it to continue, your support will be appreciated.
