GreenStage presents ‘Henry IV, Part 1’ @ two West Seattle locations
Jul 20 @ 7:00 pm

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Amelia Meckler Bowers

Fri, Jul 20 @ 7:00 pm at Camp Long – West Seattle
Thu, Jul 26 @ 7:00 pm at Lincoln Park
Sat, Jul 28 @ 7:00 pm at Lincoln Park

Continuing the story line we began last year with Richard II, we look at the reign of King Henry IV. His reign is not going well, with war in Wales and Scotland and friction with the Percy family. In addition, his son and heir, Prince Hal of Wales, bails on his responsibilities at Court to hang out in taverns with a gang of ne’er-do-wells, chief of whom is Sir John Falstaff, a drunkard who, despite his charisma, is a bad influence.

The Swashbuckling story of The Three Musketeers will delight audiences in Seattle-area parks this summer.

“We have some tremendously talented Stage combatants in Seattle and I look forward to setting them loose,” says Erin Day, GreenStage artistic director who loves the intrigue and sleight of hand that Dumas brings to his tales. She has a particular fondness for The Three Musketeers.

“The characters are all huge and dynamic,” Day says. “I like the juxtaposition of d’Artagnan’s innocence, honor and nobility in contrast to most of the other characters; his youth and eagerness to make his way contrasted to the complacency or avarice with which others move through the world.”

Filled with dueling, intrigue, clandestine love, dueling, political scheming, and dueling, The Three Musketeers has been a favorite for generations! The Musketeers have appeared on stage, the big screen, on television—even in cartoons!—and in video and board games. We think they’ll play especially well outdoors in the parks this summer. En garde!

Young Shakespeare Workshop presents Hamlet @ Roxhill Park
Jul 22 @ 2:00 pm – 4:30 pm

HAMLET
July 22, Sunday at 2 p.m. – Roxhill Park

Spoiler alert! In this play, nearly everyone who isn’t already dead at the start dies by the end! And yet, there is no funnier or wiser play about death than this, perhaps Shakespeare’s best. Performed by the vibrant young cast of nationally awarded Young Shakespeare Workshop’s Revolving Company.

Bring a picnic and dine in Denmark!
