Free Shakespeare in the Park: Optimist Theatre presents "The Winter's Tale"
Director M.L. Cogar describes The Winterâ€™s Tale as â€śa panoramic adventure-romance that showcases some of Shakespeareâ€™s richest language. The story stretches between two fairy tale kingdoms, across the genres of tragedy and comedyâ€¦it offers us a jealous king, a wrongly accused queen, a brave princess, a comic shepherd, and a singing thiefâ€”in other words, plenty of room for our team of local artists to explore the parallel inventiveness of both performance and production.â€ť The audience, she explains, should â€śexpect clear language and storytelling, evocative movement and music, and technical artistry that celebrates imaginative theater traditions. And puppets.â€ť
