It seems that there is never a shortage of things to do when you live in an apartment in Charlotte. This month brings the Charlotte Shakespeare Festival.
Charlotte Shakespeare's 2012 main stage season kicks off with The Tempest running through June 17. The Green uptown transforms into the magical world of Shakespeare’s stage. Bring a friend and picnic as magic, romance and comedy all transpire under the stars.
For performances at The Green, patrons are encouraged to bring blankets or lawn chairs as well as picnic baskets. Bring wine and cheese to truly set the stage! The festival’s popular pre-show performance series, 'Festivities', will be back again this year. Local musicians, performing artists, storytellers and poets will be there to entertain you 45 minutes prior to each performance.
Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice will run August 16-26.
