2014 Concerts in the Park
Shakespeare in the Park
A Midsummer Night's Dream
Family fun for everyone
See you at Central Park, Red Wing for the next Concert in the Park performance on Wednesday, July 23 at 7 pm
Red Wing Arts Association brings you Shakespeare like you’ve never seen it before. For this coming Wednesday’s Concert in the Park performance, Words Player’s Theater will entertain the audience with A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The popular Southeastern Minnesota troop will stage Shakespeare from an old gypsy wagon in Red Wing’s Central Park beginning at 7 pm.
“I can’t really offer advice on the best seating, because the play will be acted all around the park,” says Dan Guida, RWAA Executive Director. “Staging Shakespeare in the park is a new concept for the Arts Association. We hope the audience will ask us to do it again next year.”
Corporate support for Shakespeare in the Park is provided by Associated Bank, Red Wing. Even with the free will offering that is taken at each concert/performance, Red Wing Arts Association relies on corporate and individual sponsors who contribute to make the tradition of Concerts in the Park possible.
Words Player’s Theater did their first performance in 2004. In 2010, they shared the Barb’s work for the first time. It has become a staple of their traveling summer troop. Words is first and foremost a youth theater organization. Not only do young people act, they are involved in all aspects of theater to stage the production.
Sponsored by Red Wing Arts Association with additional support from Associated Bank.
Bring your lawn chair, blanket...whatever makes you comfortable for a fun, musical evening!
