Free Shakespeare in Griffith Park this Summer

Hark! ‘Tis Free Shakespeare in Griffith Park thanks to the Independent Shakespeare Company’s dedicated band of thespians.

What manner of free fun is this? Why the play is the thing! Two of Shakespeare’s finest are performed for free in the Griffith Park area known as the Old Zoo near 4730 Crystal Springs Dr. next to the Merry-Go-Round. Free ShakespeareOthello is on stage Thursday to Sunday through August 1 at 7PM followed by Much Ado About Nothing Thursday to Sunday August 5 to August 29 at 7PM.

There are no seats for the weary, so bring thine own blankets and low-back lawn chairs.  Consider bringing warm clothing for the oft chilly night air and flashlight to pave thy exit.

Forget not the special days set aside for free family fun! Family Nights begin at 5PM;  Othello workshop on Sunday, July 25 and Much Ado About Nothing workshop on Sunday, August 22. ISC company members introduce families to the  themes & plot of the plays, identify a few specific things to look for in the plays and encourage some Shakespearean acting.

To reserve a spot,t email,with the name of  the workshop you will be attending and how many spots you need.
Whilst all of this is free, perchance if you happen to have spare bill or two, be sure to drop it in the proverbial hat.
