With all the hype about the next big box office hit movie, people tend to forget about how the movies they love so much and can't wait to see got started. Before there was Blu-Ray, Disney 3D and movie theaters there were plays. Real people right in front of you acting, dancing, singing and entertaining. Unless you like making trips to Broadway in New York, finding a play to go to is hard, that is of course you want to go to one of the local schools theater productions. Well thanks to the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company you can now watch plays in a park near you.
This Friday, July 24th, 2009 at the Monroe Community Park you can see the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company perform Romeo and Juliet as a part of their second annual Shakespeare in the Park summer tour. The show is open to the public and is free of charge. You can enjoy this display of the arts at 7:00pm this Friday. The play is presented by the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company in conjunction with PNC Bank. The play is directed by Artistic Associate Christopher Guthrie with Ensemble Member Sara Clark in the role of Juliet.
