A One Night Only Shakespeare Event
Celebrating 20 years of Free Performances in Public Parks
July 2nd, 2018

Before you run off for the July 4th Holiday, and then to all your summer adventures...

Join The Boomerang Theatre Company for SHAKE THE ROOM, celebrating 20 years of Shakespeare Performance.

Shake The Room is part game show, part celebration. We’ll be honoring Boomerang’s 20 years of free Shakespeare productions in parks throughout New York City with scenes and highlights from 19 different productions. But the audience controls the action, picking from a “menu” what they want to see next and maybe even adding their own spin…! Choose from "Fast Forward", "Slo Mo", "Spaghetti Western", "Film Noir" and more ideas to add to your favorite scenes.
The Emcee for the evening will be Brian Silliman.

 

The All Star Cast includes David Arthur Bachrach, Francesca Calo, Devon Caraway, Dottie Davis, Philip Emeott, Jack Halpin, Chris Harcum, Jerome Hardmann-Hardeman, Andy Ingalls, Amanda Jones, Katharine McLeod, Linda S. Nelson, Mel Nieves, Leah Nicole Raymond, Stacey Raymond, Monique St. Cyr, James Scheider, Kevin Sebastian, Christine Verleny and Steward Walker.

Directed by Philip Emeott, Brian Gillespie, Cailín Heffernan and Linda S. Nelson.

It’s an interactive performance bash that honors 20 years of success, and ignites the passion for the future!

TWELFTH NIGHT

by William Shakespeare
Directed by Sara Thigpen
June 16th-July 15th, 2018

The 20th Anniversary Production of Free Outdoor Shakespeare in New York's Central Park!

 

It begins at night, with a shipwreck. All are lost, save one...a valiant woman washed ashore in a strange country. In an instant, Viola becomes the person she needs to be...in disguise.

She serves the Duke, and discovers a passion in her heart as strange as the country she now inhabits. But Duke Orsino loves another. And so Viola becomes the Duke's messenger, delivering his love to Olivia. Can she do it? Should she? And what becomes of all of them when Viola sheds her disguise and reveals her true self ?

To settle all, Viola may have to outdrink Sir Toby and Sir Andrew, outwit Feste, and outmaneuver Malvolio if she has any hope of setting true love right!

Shakespeare's celebratory comedy is presented with Free Admission on the lawn in Central Park June 16th-July 15th. Performances on Saturday and Sundays at 2pm.
