Announcing a new Meetup for The Austin Books and Chatter Group!
What: Midsummer Night's Dream
When: Sunday, May 23,[masked]:00 PM
Where: (A location has not been chosen yet.)
The Austin Shakespeare Society will be performing "A Midsummer's Night's Dream" every Thursday through Sunday, beginning April 29 and ending May 30, at the Zilker Hillside Theater starting at 8 p.m. Admission is free (but they solicit "donations"at the intermission). I thought it would be fun to get together and watch the performance, and if anyone is really ambitious to read the play and meet an hour before the show to discuss it. But the reading/discussing is optional. Here's Austin Shakespeare's blurb about the performance:
Austin Shakespeare's 25th Anniversary Season presents DREAM! A Midsummer Night's Dream, the story of young lovers who flee the conservative world to the forest where they are enchanted by the fairies. Simultaneously, a group of comic workmen including a mailman, a plumber and a waitress on roller skates are also beset by the fairies in the magical forest.
When: Thursday - Sunday, April 29 - May 30, 8PM (except Mother's Day May 9th, which will be 2PM)
Where: Zilker Hillside Theater
You can bring food and non-alcoholic beverages. They usually have a food vendor selling hotdogs, hamburgers, etc. there too. Bring a blanket to sit on. The earlier you get there the better your chances of getting a parking spot near the stage. I'll be there before 7 p.m. and I should be easy to spot. My number is[masked] if you need directions.
