Greenstage presents ‘Cymbeline’ @ Lincoln Park
Jul 24 @ 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Cymbeline
Directed by Vince Brady

Sunday, July 24: Cymbeline
7:00 pm–9:00 pm
in Lincoln Park*

Pity poor Imogen! Her dad, King Cymbeline, banishes her love Posthumus from the kingdom because he wants her to marry royally and produce a proper heir. The Queen, her stepmother, wants her own son Cloten to marry her and plots to kill both Imogen and Cymbeline in a power grab. Posthumus, in Italy, makes a really dumb bet that leads to lots of trouble. Palace intrigue, treachery, murder plots, and deception challenge the characters of Cymbeline who, with the help of two surprise players, overcome mistrust and jealousy to live happily ever after. Except the Queen and Cloten, who as bad guys get what they deserve.

The Merry Wives of Windsor

Sir John Falstaff arrives in Windsor somewhat short on cash, and decides his best remedy for the situation is to marry a rich woman. He sets about courting the married Mistress Ford and Mistress Page, sending identical letters to each. The merry wives quickly figure out Falstaff’s game, and while they’re not at all interested in his advances, they lead him on in order to play a series of jokes and indignities on him.

Hairspray @ West Seattle High School
Aug 12 @ 7:30 pm – 9:00 pm

This summer Twelfth Night Productions is proud to present HAIRSPRAY. Whether you’ve seen it live, or caught either of the movies, you know that the plot heavily revolves around the segregation of a local T.V. dance show in Baltimore MD in 1962. We feel the story is not only historically important, but still very relevant to current events.

You can’t stop the beat in this big and bold musical about one girl’s inspiring dream to dance. The 1950s are out and change is in the air! Hairspray, winner of 8 Tony® Awards including Best Musical, is a family-friendly musical piled bouffant high with laughter, romance, and deliriously tuneful songs.

Hairspray will be presented at WSHS (3000 California Ave SW) August Playing August 12, 13, 19 and 20 at 7:30, August 14, 20 and 21 at 3:00. Tickets are $23 for adults and $20 for students and seniors.

You can purchase tickets online at Brown Paper Tickets or at the door up to an hour before show-time.
