Scenic City Shakespeare in the Park – THE WINTER’S TALE
Fri., October 6, 7:30 pm-10:00 pm
Shakespeare in the Park returns to Greenway Farm in Hixson, TN, this October with The Winter’s Tale. The Bard’s riveting romance play is a classic story of jealousy and redemption across 16 years. The Winter’s Tale weaves tragedy and comedy into a fairytale with plenty of disguises, a lost princess and the famous stage direction “exit, pursued by a bear.” FREE performances will run on Friday and Saturday evenings in October. Catch shows beginning at 7:30 PM on October 6 & 7, 13 & 14, 20 & 21, 27 & 28. Admission is FREE, reservations are REQUIRED. Space is limited. Bring your outdoor chairs and blankets – seating is not provided. RSVP now at sceniccityshakespeare.org/inthepark. Arrive early to enjoy fare from local food trucks and other vendors.
