It has fast become a White Plains summertime tradition: Shakespeare in the Park! Back for its third year, Shakespeare in the Park’s community following has grown by leaps and bounds. The City of White Plains, ArtsWestchester and the White Plains Performing Arts Center have teamed up to bring Shakespeare Off-Broadway’s production of “As You Like It” to the residents of the city on Wednesday, July 13th and Thursday, July 14th at Turnure Park (Lake Street). Show time is at 7:00 p.m. on both nights. This production is free and open to the public. In the case of rain, the production will be moved indoors to the theater at the White Plains Performing Arts Center at 11 City Place.
Picnicking is encouraged! So gather your friends and family, bring your blankets and lawn chairs, and settle in for what is sure to be a thoroughly enjoyable evening. Refreshments will be available for sale.
“We are so pleased to be able to continue to offer this, family-friendly event to our residents in conjunction with ArtsWestchester,” said Mayor Roach. “There truly is an event for everyone in White Plains. This performance of Shakespeare’s As You Like It will continue our tradition of providing exciting programming to our residents.”
This event has been made possible in part by our primary sponsor ArtsWestchester. Additional sponsors of Shakespeare in the Park include: Peckham Industries, Webster Bank and the White Plains Public Library Foundation.
About “As You Like It” – “Love is merely a madness” in As You Like It, Shakespeare’s romantic comedy featuring thwarted lovers, a clown and women disguised as men. Banished Rosalind finds Orlando and a world of passionate possibility in the Forest of Arden. Enchantment abounds as chance encounters blossom into the entanglement of love. Through mischievous misunderstandings, pleasing poetry and hilarious happenstance, As You Like It shows that the forces of romance and justice can make an out-of-kilter world right again.
