'Romeo + Juliet'

PORTSMOUTH — Prescott Park Arts Festival’s Shakespeare in Prescott Park is back for its third season, and this year features three evenings to catch Shakespeare under the stars with Romeo + Juliet.

“Romeo + Juliet is a play about paradox and juxtaposition,” says Seven Stages Co-Founder Christine Penney, “and when Ben Anderson and John Moynihan- PPAF’s Executive Director and General Manager respectively- presented the opportunity to split the run of the show in half with three afternoon and three evening performances, it really gave us an opportunity to highlight those themes.” Penney says that audiences will see two very different shows in the day and evening performances. “The play has innumerable references to day and night,” she explains, “and director (and Seven Stages Co-Founder) Dan Beaulieu’s vision for the show has truly allowed those elements to come to life in ways that are sure to surprise audiences depending on which show they see.” Penney even offers a hint as to what one of those surprises might be, encouraging audiences that attend the evening shows to “bring a flashlight.”

Shakespeare in Prescott Park’s Romeo + Juliet plays on the Prescott Park Arts Festival stage on: Tues., August 6 at 7:00 p.m.; Sun., August 11 at 2:00 p.m.; Sun., August 18 at 2:00 p.m.; and Sat., August 31 at 7:00 p.m. Suggested donation $5.00 to $10.00 at the gate.
