GreenStage presents Shakespeare in the Park all around the city this summer, including at Green Lake’s Woodland Park on July 15-17. The shows are performed in the meadow on the east side of Highway 99, just south of the lawn bowling and horseshoe pits, near Shelter 6.

The shows are free but they’ll pass the hat afterwards for donations. Bring a blanket or chair (if you’ve got a chair, please sit towards the back so you don’t block the view of the blanket sitters). Shows usually happen rain or shine, but if there’s super heavy rain or lightning, organizers say they’ll cancel.
For the Woodland Park shows, on Thursday, July 15 at 7 p.m. it’s “Romeo and Juliet.” On Friday, July 16 at 7 p.m. it’s “As You Like It.” And on Saturday July 17, there’s a double header. “As You Like It” is at 3 p.m., followed by “Romeo and Juliet” at 7 p.m.
