Seattle Shakespeare Company's Free Summer Performances Will Be HENRY V and THE TEMPEST

Seattle Shakespeare Company will celebrate 20 years of free Shakespeare in the parks this summer with productions of the Henry V and The Tempest. Performances of both productions will begin on Thursday, July 11 and will run through Sunday, August 11, 2013.

"When I started Wooden O in 1994, I was fueled by that youthful exuberance to dream big without really knowing where it will end up or how far it could go," said Seattle Shakespeare Company's Artistic Director George Mount. "In order to make it to this milestone, it took a number of heroes helping out along the way to create the theatrical magic each summer. And so for this anniversary we have a little bit of both; Shakespeare's heroic and ambitious Henry V and the magical, melancholy The Tempest."

Mount will direct Henry V assisted by fellow founding Wooden O company member Vanessa Miller, and Kelly Kitchens will direct The Tempest. The shows will be performed in parks at Mercer Island, Sammamish, Seattle, Lynnwood, Edmonds, SeaTac, Issaquah, and Shoreline with other cities and venues to be announced. All performances are free and open to the public with donations encouraged at the site.
