The Next Stage Ensemble of the Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey will perform The Winter’s Tale in the parking lot behind the library. The first of Shakespeare’s great mystical romances, The Winter’s Tale transports audiences through a fanciful and sometimes dark 16-year journey. From the seeds of unfounded jealousy, two kingdoms become entangled in a web of paranoia, insinuation, and mistrust. From the dramatic accusations in the high court of Sicilia, to the raucous and jovial Bohemian sheep-shearing festival, to the revelatory final scene, The Winter’s Tale celebrates the triumph of love, nobility, and all things good, and ends with a promise of rejuvenation, redemption and hope.
Please bring your own lawn chairs. The play will be performed behind the library. In case of rain, stop by the library to find out the rain location. This play is free and suitable for ages 8 and up. No registration.
