Performance: King Lear,  5:00 p.m. – 6:30 p.m.
King Lear has ruled for many years. As age overtakes him, he divides his kingdom amongst his children. Misjudging their loyalty, he soon finds himself stripped of all the trappings of state, wealth and power that had defined him. Shakespeare’s great tragedy explores the notion of power – who has it, how one obtains it, and how one defines it.

Kids & The Classics, 4:30 p.m.
Kids & the Classics is the companion piece to Hip to Hip’s program of “Free Shakespeare in the Parks.” This free interactive workshop is offered 30 minutes before every performance, and is designed for children ages 4 to 12. It gives children a chance to interact with the text by previewing the characters and situations, and creating links between the text and their own lives through theatre games and close reading of text.

Free. No RSVP is required.

Shakespeare in the Park is presented in partnership with Hip to Hip Theatre Company.
