Need something fun to do this weekend?
I have your answer.
I had never been to Nashville’s Shakespeare in the Park festival before. But the weather yesterday was so very perfect that I couldn’t imagine spending the evening anywhere but outdoors.
So, naturally, I packed a picnic basket:
- One Pink Panther and one Rosco from the Silly Goose
- One bottle of white wine from Woodland Wine Merchant
- Two steady stick wine glass holders
- One blanket
- Two Crazy Creek chairs
Patrick and I arrived around 6:00 to eat our picnic and stake out a prime location. There is always an opening musical performance by a local musician that starts at 6:30. And the show starts at 7:30.
The cast performed A Midsummer Nights’ Dream in a way that brings Shakespeare to life. Brad Brown plays Theseus with a perfect rendition of a Charleston accent. Savannah Frazier, as Helena, even incorporates her cell phone into each scene, in a way that makes it seem Shakespeare almost scripted it so.
The suggested donation is just $10, and what started as just a night to be outside, ended up being one of the best dates we’ve ever been on!
The show goes on every Thursday-Sunday until September 15th at Centennial Park.
Don’t miss it!
