To mark the opening of Ah, Wilderness! at the Riverside Theatre Shakespeare Festival this Friday, the Festival Intern Company will perform a preview of the Green Show for Ah, Wilderness! a comedy about family and first love by Eugene O’Neill, this Friday, June 17, at 12:10 p.m. on the downtown pedestrian mall (near Washington Street).
At the Riverside Theatre Shakespeare 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.
The Riverside Theatre Shakespeare Festival opens this Friday, June 17 at 8 p.m. with Ah, Wilderness! written by Eugene O’Neill and directed by Theodore Swetz.
The Festival also includes performances of The Two Gentlemen of Verona, written by William Shakespeare and directed by Ron Clark, which will open on June 24. Ah, Wilderness! and The Two Gentlemen of Verona will then be performed in rotation until July 10.
