Shakespeare in the Park

Friday, August 9 (7:00pm - 9:00pm)

Pack your snacks, blankets and lawn chairs and head to Wright Park for a free outdoor production of Shakespeare's “Twelfth Night.”

The show starts at 7 p.m. and arrives in Tacoma courtesy of Seattle Shakespeare Co.’s Wooden O productions, a traveling troupe that specializes in open-air shows.

If you would like to get close to the action, bring a blanket to sit on the ground. Alternatively, low-rise, collapsible beach chairs work well. If you’d prefer a higher seat, the company recommends sitting in the back of the crowd.

About Twelfth Night

Love Lost and Love Found. After a shipwreck separates Viola from her twin brother, so begins a whirlwind of mistaken identities and unrequited love on the coast of Illyria. Ever resourceful, Viola disguises herself, sets out to conquer this strange land, and starts serving as a go-between for two lovesick households. When she falls in love with her employer, Viola gets caught up in a romantic knot that she must untangle. Just when things stretch to the brink of bedlam, her twin appears and the puzzle pieces come together.
