Renaissance on the River

William Shakespeare’s influence, over the centuries since his life and death, cannot possibly be overstated. His contributions to the stage, the page and the English language itself are multifaceted and unparalleled, making him perhaps the most important writer in the history of the world. This weekend, folks of all ages are invited to experience the magic of the Bard at La Villita, which will be transformed into a family-friendly, renaissance fair-style environment. Think of it as a Shakespeare-focused variety show. The special incarnation of Shakespeare in the Park will feature movie screenings of The Tempest, Romeo and Juliet and Hamlet, performances of A Winter’s Tale and the wildly successful comedy The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged!) and a special presentation of Hello, Shakespeare! by The Magik Theatre Young Players. Also featured on the grounds will be falconry, noble combat games, food, drinks, magic shows, crafts, music and games.
