Tonight: Shakespeare In The Park 2009 Kicks Off

A telltale sign of the rapidly-approaching end of summer in Nashville, Shakespeare in the Park has been busy setting up shop in Centennial Park for the past few weeks, preparing for their first performance of the summer tonight. We love Shakespeare in the Park because it’s a free and entertaining annual event that really brings the community together, and if you’ve been reading Nashvillest for long, you know that we’re (almost) always on board with that!

This year, the Nashville Shakes will feature two performances – The Taming Of The Shrew, today through August 23, and The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare [Abridged], running August 27 through September 13. The free performances at the Centennial Park bandshell are Thursdays through Sundays within the specified dates, and the evening begins at 6:30pm with some pre-show entertainment.

Of course, we have to remind you that donations are welcome (and maybe even encouraged). The Nashville Shakes go to great lengths every year to make Shakespeare In The Park such a great event for the Nashville community, so throw ‘em a few bones to support their work.
