July 30th and August 13th, Wednesdays.
The Garden is the perfect setting for Hip to Hip Theatre’s spirited, richly costumed & family-friendly productions of Shakespeare’s plays. The company brings their two new productions to the Voelker Orth this summer.
Cymbeline July 30th
A fantastical action-adventure story that combines tragedy, comedy and romance. King Cymbeline’s only daughter, Imogen, secretly marries against his wishes, and he banishes her new husband. With war looming and an evil stepmother plotting, the spunky princess ventures into the wild to reunite with her true love. Through Imogen's journey, Shakespeare examines a central issue of his time and ours -- faith
Two Gentlemen of Verona August 13th
A slapstick comedy about love, friendship, betrayal, forgiveness…and a dog. Young Proteus only has eyes for his hometown sweetheart, until he lays eyes on his best friend’s love. This is a zany tale of romantic rivals with lightning changes in affection, a maiden in disguise, bandits, and one of Shakespeare’s funniest clowns. The play asks the question: Is all really fair in love?
Performances run approximately 90 minutes. Free Admission—No Rain Dates
