We were ECSTATIC last summer during A Midsummer Night's Dream to host John McGivern and the crew of Around the Corner as part of their "official" visit to Brewer's Hill. They filmed an interview with Todd Denning, our Oberon, as well as the general delightful environs of the show. Now, that episode is now scheduled to air! Which is beyond cool to start with.
But wait, it gets better!
There will be a preview party at Lakefront Brewery. And all our friends and fans are invited to turn out. In fact, we'd really love to have lots of you proudly flying your Shakespeare in the Park banners (figurative, anyway**) to show the rest of the neighborhood just how excited you all are to have us in their/your midst.
Besides...brewery! John McGivern! John Gurda! Get all the details straight from John McG, then read below for more from us:
What else do you need to know?
This was all arranged by the fantastic people at the Historic Brewer's Hill Association, so be sure to appreciate them, in whatever way seems appropriate, for putting this soiree together.
If you'd like to come out, there's no need to RSVP -- doors open at 6:00, just show up! That said, feel free to post a comment telling us to look for you in what will surely be a crowd!
**We would be aided in spotting you if you elected to sport a Shakespeare in the Park t-shirt (or mug or shower curtain...) that you could find here!!
Finally, if you can't be at the preview party, you can (and should!) still catch the episode when it airs two days later on MPTV (channel 10.1), Thursday, February 25 at 7:00 pm.
Thanks to the fun-filled success of last year’s Sonnet Slam, we invite you to join us the evening of Monday, May 13, 2013 at Optimist Theatre’s …
“All the World’s a Stage Sonnet Slam”
All the world’s a stage,
and all the men and women, merely players-
they have their exits and their entrances,
and one man in his time plays many parts,
his acts being seven ages.
AS YOU LIKE IT Act 2 scene 7, 139-143
