A Midsummer Night's Dream lunch and reading recap, and Notice of coming events

Thank-you to all, who came out to wish Andrew godspeed. Andrew and his family left for England on July 3. We will welcome him again in the future, if he has a chance to fit us in, when he visits family in Washington. The meeting room at the University branch library is comfortable, roomy, and well-lighted, and the staff are extremely accommodating. We had a lovely lunch with plenty to share with those, who could not make it until our scheduled reading.

We learned that many of the attendees have other plans on our next meeting date, July 14. I also brought up the number of Shakespeare plays available to the public for free that weekend. We decided on leaving it up to individuals, who may be attending any of these plays, to post suggested meet-ups for that weekend. As for readings coming up in the near future, our co-organizers will post meet-up notices at a later date. They will be scheduled for the arboretum as follows:

Saturday, July 28 at 1:00 pm: Henry IV
Saturday, August 11 at 1:00 pm: Measure for Measure.

The schedule of just a few of the Shakespeare plays available on July 14 and July 15 follows. All performances are outdoors in the park, except King Lear at the Lee Center at Seattle University. WoodenO/Seattle Shakespeare performances will occur rain or shine and will be cancelled only on the occasion of thunder and lightning. All of the plays, except Jet City Improv, will be performed at other venues in the next few weeks. More information is available on the Seattle Shakespeare Readthrough website:­. Seattle Outdoor Theatre Festival:­.

Saturday, July 14:

Volunteer Park, Seattle:
2:00 pm - The Winter’s Tale, Wooden O/Seattle Shakespeare (90 minutes)
7:00 pm - The Taming of the Shrew, GreenStage (2 hours)

Luther Burbank Park, Mercer Island:
2:00 pm - Twelfth Night, Wooden O/Seattle Shakespeare (90 minutes)

Lee Center for the Arts, Seattle University
8:00 pm - King Lear, Freehold’s Engaged Theatre Tour (2 hours)

Sunday, July 15:

Volunteer Park, Seattle:
2:00 pm - Henry VIII, GreenStage (2 hours)
7:00 pm - Twelfth Night, Seattle Shakespeare (90 minutes)

Lee Center for the Arts, Seattle University
4:00 pm - King Lear, Freehold’s Engaged Theatre Tour (2 hours)

(Note also that pay-what-you-can tickets are being offered to the preview performances of Romeo and Juliet on Friday, July 6, and Tuesday, July 10 at 8:00 pm.)

My guest and I will definitely be attending plays on both July 14 and 15. I will begin by posting a suggested meet-up for King Lear on Sunday, July 15 at 4:00 pm. This is the only public matinee performance of this production. We went to the scheduled performance last Saturday at Seward Park, but they had to stop the show early in the first act due to safety concerns for the actors on the rain-soaked surface. It was looking fine! This production incorporates music and puppets into this masterpiece.
