“Out, out, brief candle! Life’s but a walking shadow, a poor player that struts and frets his hour upon the stage and then is heard no more: it is a tale told by an idiot, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.”     ~ Shakespeare, Macbeth (Act V, Scene V).

Oh, the beauty and wonder of the writings of Shakespeare.

When I was younger and had more time to read for fun, I often let my imagination drift away in one of the Bard’s twisting tales of love, deception, and revenge.   Sadly, it has been a while since I turned the pages of Shakespeare.

But my love for Shakespeare can be re-ignited because I’ve discovered Shakespeare in the Park.

As the area's veteran producers of Shakespeare in the Park, Shakespeare Dallas has invited audiences to enjoy accessible productions in an open-air amphitheatre since 1971, reaching over 50,000 people every summer and fall.

This season you can enjoy the incredible performances of Twelfth Night, Coriolanus, and MacBeth.   I can’t wait!
