The summer tradition returns! A Company of Fools is back with their Torchlight Shakespeare in the Park series. On Tuesday, August 13 at 7 pm, the Oxford Mills Community Association will host The Company of Fools as they perform Romeo and Juliet in Maplewood Park, the perfect setting for an evening summer picnic with the entire family (even the dog).
For the first time in 11 years, A Company of Fools tackles Shakespeare’s iconic story of doomed young love. A stellar local cast of Fools, both new and old, play 14 different roles to retell Shakespeare’s popular story in your own backyard.
A carnival setting creates the backdrop for the Fools’ fantastical take on the streets of Verona. Swords are paired with water pistols, and live music is played by a carnie barker with a megaphone. Audiences will be transported to an adolescent paradise of dangerous pleasure.
Relive your teenage angst with the Fools this Summer, as they present the world’s favourite romance. Bring a lawn chair in order to enjoy high culture in one of North Grenville’s most beautiful parks.
