I Don't Know About You, But I Could Use A Lark!

Citizens of this fair city, if you don't attend Shakespeare in the Park, you are seriously missing some fine cheap culture!

When you look at the price of theatre tickets these days (I will pay $20 to see Cotton Patch Gospel this weekend--and that's with local talent!!), six bucks to catch a Shakespeare play is a bargain! I had the privilege to work with these good folks in the summer of 96 and I can tell you firsthand, they are what you want to see in local artists. They care about the art and making it relevant to the community. It is in the least snobby atmosphere you could want (once you get over that it's in Edmond). You are encouraged to bring a picnic, kids can quietly run around, and there is no dress code. Good good times.

So haul out your bugspray, light a citronella candle and plan to get thee to Hafer Park this summer. They're doing Twelfth Night, Hamlet and Midsummer Night's Dream, not a dud in the bunch!!!

Go to the theatre, it's good for you.

This concludes this commercial message.
