Shakespeare in the Park ... in Dallas

Our very own "Youth Group" watching the warm up action on stage!
Last night our Commuter Family attended Shakespeare in the Park at Samuell-Grand Park. We along with about 25 others were guests of a generous friend, Shakespeare Patron. Each season Shakespeare Patron invites friends to bring their kids and enjoy this amazing venue. Shakespeare Patron provides seating as well as scrumptious food and drink. We just have to show up. These outings fall into my favorite nights of the year in Dallas. Our Shakespeare Patron simply wants to share her love of Shakespeare and hopefully inspire our kids.

The delicious menu of homemade items included potato salad, salmon sandwiches, cheese & pesto sandwiches, berry fruit bowls, cheese & crackers, deviled eggs, hummus & pita, dipping veggies, nuts, cookies, organic sodas, wine and beer
The play was The Winter's Tale which is tragedy, romance and comedy. It is an uneven play but seemed to have something for everyone. It is definitely bawdy in places. The naughty dance of shirtless men with sheep horns and a carrot strategically placed around their waist brought grins to young and old!
Youngest Son and Oldest Son eat and drink while waiting for The Winter's Tale to begin.
Go to Shakespeare Dallas - the acting and productions are impressive and fun!
