Bear & Co. brings Shakepeare in the Park to Champlain Park at 7 p.m. this Friday, August 2, 2019 (not to be confused with the following Friday’s other Shakespeare play). A family favourite, A Midsummer Night’s Dream invites the audience to play. Bring your children by 18:40 to take part in the woodland scenes. At 18:50, help construct an outdoor theatre by seating yourselves. Chairs or a rug: necessary. So is raingear in “Scots weather!” A picnic, butterfly hat, or kazoos: optional. The show commences at 19:00! Suggested donation into the hat: $20 per person. This year’s show features sword-fighting, music, and a 10-year-old Puck. Visit http://www.bearandcompany.ca/ for details.
