Shakespeare in the Park is back at The Barnacle with live performances of "Much Ado About Nothing" on Friday, January 22 at 8 pm and Saturday, January 23 at 8 pm, there are no Sunday shows. This photo is the cast at last week's opening production at Pinecrest Gardens.
On Saturday, at 6:30 pm, before the show, there will be a family area with a Shakespearean Photo Booth and crafts for kids. At 7:15 pm there will be a curtain talk at the stage. The show starts at 8:00 pm.
Folks should bring their own low lawn chairs or a blanket. Rental chairs are available for $3 each but are limited. Picnics are welcome. People shouldn't bring their dogs, as there are a lot of people in the park and a lot going on.
As always, Shakespeare Miami's shows are free and no ticket is necessary. Last year the park filled up very quickly, so people might want to consider coming on Friday, when the crowds are less, or earlier on Saturday to save a spot.
The park will ask for an optional donation of $2 per person.
Shakespeare Miami’s production of Much Ado About Nothing is set in Michigan, just after the Civil War. The conflict in Much Ado, which tells the tale of the aftermath of a war that pitted brother against brother, mirrors the conflict in America in the mid 1860’s, which still divides families today.
Featuring costumes of the 1860’s, period music and dance, this beloved comedy sparkles with wit and bawdy silliness.
Shakespeare tells the story of two sets of lovers, one set adorable and one set reluctant, and the villain who vows to turn their peaceful world upside down.
