Announcing Summer 2013 Plans

We are delighted to announce our selection for our next Shakespeare adventure: Romeo and Juliet

On the heels of last summer’s successful two-week run of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Touhy Park, we will return to the north side this year with a longer run of performances and an expanded reach in the community. Performances will span four weeks this summer, with two weeks returning to Touhy Park as well as two weeks at nearby Schreiber Park. We are excited to partner once again with the Chicago Park District, especially with the opportunity this year to deepen our relationship with Touhy as well as to forge a connection with our new friends at Schreiber.

The play will be directed by Midsommer Flight founder and Producing Artistic Director Beth Wolf. Just like last year, all performances will be presented free of charge (donations gratefully accepted).  In addition, live music will be presented prior to each performance, and audiences are encouraged to come early and bring a picnic. We’ll post more details about the show as we get closer to the performances, including cast and crew listings, musical guests, and logistical information about planning your trip to the park.

We hope you’ll join us in July and August for another incredible experience this year.  We are thrilled to share Shakespeare’s beautiful and passionate story of young love this summer!
