Join us on the Lawn for a free show: Shakespeare's The Tempest done with a Steampunk sytle by the North Fulton Drama Club.
For the unititiated, Steampunk is a fabrication of an alternate history, a version of the Victorian and Edwardian eras where technology advanced about a century faster than history recorded. The skies are full of zeppelins and flying contraptions. Everything has a feeling of refinement and luxury made possible through impossible engines built from polished wood and brass, powered by a combination of clockworks and steam.1
Join us on the lawn, left side facing stage, between 7:00 and 7:15 for the pre-show picnic starting at 7:15. I will have a balloon tied to my chair. You need to bring a chair, some munchies to share ( 6 individually wrapped treats to pass around - each under 80 calories thank you) , a non-alcoholic flavored drink or water to trade, your imagination, and maybe, just maybe a fabulous gift for the organizer(s).
Summer Steampunk attire optional.
