“From this day to the ending of the world, but we in it shall be remembered.” -William Shakespeare, Henry V
That’s one of my favorite quotes from Henry V! If you love the arts, you shall have plenty of exciting Thursdays into weekends to celebrate them! The annual celebration of William Shakespeare’s works had its opening night yesterday at sunset. Shakespeare in the Park opened with Henry V in Centennial Park at the Bandshell! This event runs through September 13, 2015. Each year there are food and drink vendors as well as preshow entertainment. This year’s vendors will open nightly at 6pm with the preshow entertainment beginning shortly after at 6:30pm. Some of the food and drink vendors are Jeni’s Ice Cream, Moosehead Kettle Corn, Music City Pie Co., Lil Choo Choo BBQ. For a full vendor schedule, click here. Musical talents for the preshow entertainment includes Adam Burrows, Eight O’Five Jive, Grasstime and many others. For a full list of preshow entertainers, click here.
The Nashville Shakespeare Festival Outreach and Programming are operating this event a bit different than the previous years. In order to keep Shakespeare in the Park free, they have created Royal and Noble Experience Packages this year. These packages provide reserved seating and various dining options. For more details, visit the Nashville Shakespeare Festival website or click here. As always, donations are appreciated! Get out and enjoy an evening of Shakespeare!
