She’s Peaseblossom!

The Downtown Sherman Preservation and Revitalization organization has done something new… they are producing A Midsummer Night’s Dream in a (relatively new) outdoor amphitheater in a local park. Our very own Shakespeare in the Grove was great fun!.

Steve and I, and many others, attended the first show last night. We took our lawn chairs and breathed outside air and watched the play as the sun went down. Our granddaughter, Elanor/Peaseblossom, was the first person onstage which gave us both a big grin!

It rained a couple of hours before the show started and a small shower moved through during the first act. It left a rainbow in its wake…

As the rain came down the audience mostly moved under cover, on the stage floor. It was then that I got this quick photo of Peaseblossom and the lead Fairy, Sarah. After the rain, the show went on.

This production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream is being put on by gifted and enthusiastic thespians. Many talented people from our area worked together to start a new tradition, one that I hope will grow and prosper. I’m looking forward to seeing another production of Shakespeare in the Grove next year!

There are 5 more performances as I write this… tonight and tomorrow, and next weekend: June 6, 7, and 8.

    • This was actually Shakespeare for adults, with kids in the production in appropriate parts. The other parts were played by adults and the audience was primarily adults. I’m not sure that young kids would have been able to follow the action in this particular production but certainly older kids could!

  2. It is great to have some activities outside before the HEAT sets in. You are great to go and to support with a blog post this event. Fort Worth has concerts in the park the month of June. I noticed that parking this year is $15, some how that kills it for me.
