‘Pay-What-You-Can’ night on Wednesday, July 20th. The eleventh annual Shakespeare in the Grove production is Carlo Goldoni’s 1740 commedia masterpiece, performed outdoors on the campus of Middlesex Community College, and tonight is a great opportunity to see it for whatever you can afford to pay.
First week audiences are raving about this fast-paced farce: “The play is HILARIOUS from start to finish. We LOVED it and plan to see it again, later this week. Check it out!” writes one audience member. Another happy patron gushed: “I LOVED it! I am so thrilled and impressed. Can you please keep doing commedia?” People who have been to ARTFARM’s Shakespeare in the Grove productions for years are calling it their favorite show yet.
All performances start at 7 pm, and are preceded by an hour of live music beginning at 6 p.m. Each evening’s performance is opened by a different Connecticut headliner musician, showcasing some of the State’s best musical acts.
This week’s musical headliners are as follows:
Wednesday 7/20- Andrew Biagiarelli
Thursday 7/21- Krizta Moon
Friday 7/22- Nancy Tucker
Sunday 7/24- Kate Callahan
Bring lawn chairs, blankets and a picnic and enjoy professional music and theater at sunset in the beautiful Cedar Grove overlooking the Connecticut River Valley. Popcorn and ice cream are available at the venue, but most patrons bring their own picnic and beverages and enjoy the music and the setting with friends or family before the play begins.
The performance on Friday, July 22 will be followed by a “Talkback” with the director and cast.
Middlesex Community College is located at 100 Training Hill Road, Middletown, CT.
