Shakespeare in the Park – free and nearby

Allentown’s Shakespeare in the Park presents three performances the weekend of August 8th; one show at 8 p.m. on Friday, August 8th and two shows on Saturday, August 9th at 2 p.m. and 8 p.m. Live music and food trucks will be at the park one hour before showtime. You can bring a picnic and lawn chairs, or sit on the grass to enjoy the play at the Joseph S. Daddona Lake & Terrace Park, 20th and Union Streets, Allentown.

The professional company staging of Othello  is set just after World War II when the U.S. began racially integrating the armed services, and is set at an army military camp.

 

Performances are held rain or shine. A donation bucket will be passed around the audience.
