FREE Shakespeare in the Park for Families
The Actors’ Gang brings back the long-anticipated Free Shakespeare in the Park for Families with a production of As BOO Like It on Saturday, August 6th, continuing a 15-year tradition of free theater in Culver City Media Park. Based on William Shakespeare’s As You Like It and featuring all of our favorite classic Halloween characters, this 45-minute production will run every Saturday and Sunday in August at 11 am through August 28th.
Ideal for all ages, Free Shakespeare in the Park for Families is a high-energy theatrical performance designed for children to experience reimagined Shakespeare classics by weaving modern, cultural, iconic references into classic texts, TAG creates shows specifically designed for multi-generational audiences. The Actors’ Gang’s As BOO Like It introduces children to Shakespeare in a welcoming, kid-friendly environment.
Adapted by Rynn Vogel, As BOO Like It features fun characters including Orlando the Vampire, Rosalind the Witch, Jaques Skeleton, Duke Frederick the thumb wrestling champion, Zombie Charles, Celiacorn, a friendly dragon named Touchstone, and a lovesick ghost named Silvius. It’s a story about love that inspires forgiveness, and in the end, like in all of Shakespeare’s comedies, there’s a spectacular wedding.
The Actors’ Gang summer performances are provided FREE-OF-CHARGE thanks to generous support in part by the City of Culver City and its Cultural Affairs Commission, with support from Sony Pictures Entertainment and the Culver City Art Foundation.
