Barkcloth circle skirts! Handsome men in Navy whites! Saddle shoes and two-tone Mary Jane heels! Victory rolls, polka-dotted swing trousers, rhinestone brooches, and villains in devilish red and black zoot suits. I was in vintage clothing heaven. Oh, and the live band? SO much fun! Maybe it's silly, but I love the cheerful cheesiness of community theater.
|Leonata, Antonia, Hero, and Beatrice... Don't you want to crash their cocktail hour and raid their closets?!|
|Let's play FIND THAT VILLAIN! Can you find the bad boy, based alone on his devilish cowlicks?|
Tips for attending Shakespeare in the Park:
1. Immediately in front of the stage is an area for picnickers with blankets and small chairs. Behind that is a semi-circle ring of bleacher style seating. Bring a blanket and sit at the very front! Seeing the small details made the show so much better, and the actors hid among us during one scene, which was fun.
2. The show begins at 7:30. But if you're bringing a picnic meal, arrive at about 6:45. I arrived right as the show began, and I felt self-conscious eating during the show.
3. Remember to bring a $10 donation!
