Shakespeare in Fall City Park: King Henry VIII, ‘Shrew’ start this Friday
Fall City Arts, Friends of the Fall City Library and Greenstage are bringing two nights of outdoor Shakespeare performance to town. Plays are presented by veteran local outdoor theater company, Greenstage.
Taming of the Shrew
Set for 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 3, at Fall City Park off Neal Road, and directed by Marc Moser, this popular comedy follows the strange inhabitants of Padua and their hilarious misadventures in pursuit of love. Guitars become weapons, suitors become tutors, and the unlikeliest of lovers discover in one another the best parts of who they are. Come enjoy this mad romance in the parks this summer, and bring someone you love to share in the laughter.
Power struggles at the court of King Henry VIII, pomp and pageantry, behind-the-scenes scheming, suspense, and intrigue mark this fascinating history of one of England’s most complex and notorious kings. The final play of Shakespeare’s life is broadly human, focused on the moral tension of leadership and the humility that comes with governance. It’s directed by Teresa Thuman.
Henry VIII is 7 p.m. Friday, Aug. 10, also at Fall City Park. Shakespeare in the Park is funded by the Friends of the Fall City Library. For information, visit www.fallcityarts.com or www.kcls.org/fallcity/friends.cfm.
