To mark the opening of The Two Gentlemen of Verona at the Riverside Theatre Shakespeare Festival this weekend, the Festival Intern Company will perform a free preview of William Shakespeare's The Two Gentlemen of Verona Green Show this Friday, June 24, at 12:10 p.m. on the downtown pedestrian mall (near Washington St.).
At the Festival, the Green Shows are performed one hour before curtain. These 20-minute story theatre versions of the evening's play allow the audience to brush up on the plot in advance of the evening performance. The nightly show-and this preview performance-showcases the work of acting, production, and stage management interns from the Riverside Theatre Shakespeare Festival Intern Company. Traditionally, the Green Shows feature much humor and are especially appealing to kids.
