Shakespeare Play to be Performed in Sutton Park this Weekend

August 13, 2014

Sutton Park in Elberton will host a first time event for the Elbert Theatre this weekend.

Performed entirely by teens, an outdoor play titled A Midsummer Night’s Dream: The Interlude will be held outdoors.

“Which is something new for the Elbert theatre we have never gone outside of our walls to do a performance, so I think it’s going to be really fun and really cool, and I think people would really enjoy it”, said King.

Elbert Theatre Director Toni King says it is common place in areas across the United States and even in Europe to perform Shakespeare outdoors.

“It is a known thing that people look forward to every summer, and we have such a beautiful park here that I thought it would be a fun thing to try. To see if everybody liked it and if they do then we’re likely to do a bigger more advanced production in the few future”, says King.

Performances will be held on Saturday, August 16th and Sunday, August 17th at 2:00pm each day.

There is no admission for the show, but King says they will have a place for those wanting to make donations during the show, as to try and recoup the costs for costumes.

She also says concessions will be available in some degree that weekend.
