Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park 2009 Schedule

· No Comments

Art thou ready for another great season of Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park?  If you love seeing some of the Bard’s classic plays performed in the beautiful outdoor weather, then I’m sure you are.  OK, maybe the weather isn’t always that beautiful right now (the temperature is hitting over 100 every day!), but the performances are in the evening when it starts to cool off.  This year’s season is being performed at the Myriad Gardens Water Stage, which brings a whole new look to the performances.

 

Currently, OK Shakespeare in the Park is performing As You Like It.  The performance will end on July 11, however.  Following that, the 25th season of performances will continue with a production of Misalliance.  Not familiar with this Shakespeare play?  That’s because it was written by George Bernard Shaw.  Yes, in a rare move, the company is performing a few non-Shakespearian pieces.  Misalliance will run July 16 through the 25th. 

 

Shaw’s play will be followed up by one of the classics: Hamlet.  This famous work starts on July 30 and runs through August 22.  It’s followed by Twelfth Night starting on August 27th and ending on September 5th.

 

Finally, Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park wraps up their 25th anniversary season with a celebration and fund raiser at the Civic Center.  Those attending will be treated to a great meal and then a performance of The Complete Works of Shakespeare (Abridged).  It’s sure to be a great evening for anyone who attends!

 

Tickets to any of the OSP performances are $10 for adults and $8 for students, groups, and seniors.  Performances take place at 8:00 p.m. Thursday through Saturday evenings at the Myriad Gardens.  More information can be found at http://www.oklahomashakespeare.com/.
