Shakespeare in South Park this weekend- FREE!

Say what you want about other neighborhoods, ain’t any others throwing Shakespeare at you for free with a cast from the ‘hood.

“Much ado about nothing” will be presented this Friday, Saturday and Sunday at 8pm at the Gazebo on Park Drive, just off Wayne, one block North of the Wyoming street intersection.

There are bleachers, but, blankets and lawn chairs are welcome as well. Stop in at the South Park Tavern at 1301 Wayne before or after for Pizza Factory pizza and beverages. They just added a brand new patio- to celebrate their one year anniversary.

This is neighborhood theater- with a no-budget production- so, come on out, have a good time and if you can’t hear everything, just remember- you were supposed to read it in High School- so you should know the story already (here’s a link to a synopsis).They’ve updated the time to right after WWII for this version- but it’s still the same story- in the bard’s old tongue.

Kudo’s to all my neighbors who have invested countless hours learning their lines, learning the dances and running the risk of embarrassing themselves in public. Next up- the South Park Marching Band, the South Park Gong Show and a neighborhood semi-pro jello wrestling league.

Pizza Factory and South Park Tavern are both delicious.

I’m excited about having a few beers, a slice or two, and see some potentially very unique theater this weekend.


Seth and David,
Thank you for the kind words, but let’s keep the focus where it should be: Shakespeare in South Park promises to be a blast!

Hat’s off to all involved, and I’m sure the Bard himself will be smiling down upon you all weekend.

Break a leg, cast!

P.S. The South Park Tavern volunteers to host the “South Park Gong Show” anytime! I know we could pull off an evening that Chuck Barris would be proud of. Let’s give it a whirl.


I will promo this on Myspace and such.
Also South Park related – Saturday at SPTav don’t miss Jordan Hull. This kid is amazing,SO amazing! Hosted and sponsored by every musicians friend, Kyle Melton of The Budah Den. Show The Budah Den some support by attending some of the many fine shows hosted at SPTav and other various venues.

Of course, AleFest AND the Lebanese Festival are also going on this weekend! Why do all the wonderful things going-on seem to bottleneck on a single weekend? ;-)
