No arguments about the tickets to this week's show being too expensive -- the performance is FREE! Of course Schuylkill Free Shakespeare will accept any donations so it would be great if everyone gave what they could afford. The great part of this system is that everyone who wants to see the performance can! From everyone out there who may not have that much extra cash for things like entertainment I'd like to send a big THANK YOU to Schuylkill Free Shakespeare.
So what's on the bill this time? As You Like It and King Lear. If you need a Shakespeare brush up, As You Like It is a comedy that tell a story of romance, mistaken identity, injustice, disguises and all sorts of fun. King Lear is a tragedy about the King's descent into madness and the effect it has on him, his family and his kingdom. I vote for the silliness of As You Like It but many people love King Lear too.
All the performances are at the Yuengling Mansion. In the mood for As You Like It? The 7 pm evening shows are on August 7, 9, 11 and a 2 pm matinee on August 12. King Lear will be at 7 pm on August 8, 10, 12 and a 2 pm matinee on August 11.
