Shakespeare In The Park Comes To Teaneck with MACBETH & TWELFTH NIGHTThe Black Box Performing Arts Center continues to emerge as the Tri-State area's premiere destination for both cutting-edge professional theater and collaborative arts education - in the heart of Teaneck, just a quick ride over the George Washington Bridge.

Following a stellar second season of professional theater, Black Box Studios (Matt Okin, Artistic Director), in partnership with the Township of Teaneck, is excited to announce a new offering for Summer 2018: Shakespeare in the Park! During the month of August, a troupe of professional theater-makers will be traveling to various parks throughout Bergen County performing Shakespeare's Macbeth and Twelfth Night.

Macbeth and Twelfth Night will be performed in repertory, featuring the talents of Zach Abraham, Sam Cancelarich, Jason Felix, Michael Gardiner, Sara Giacomini, Samuel Hapner-Goldman, Nachi Lederer, Danielle MacMath, Mariah Plante, Bishon Prushankin, Samantha Quiles, Joseph Ramondino, Ellen Revesz, Rommell Sermons, Joey Sponseller, Sarah Spring, Larissa Terese, and Kevin Terwin. Macbeth is directed by Allison Falkenstern and Twelfth Night is directed by Michael Gardiner. The designer of both shows is Nimon Ibrahimaj, with Larissa Terese and Danielle MacMath serving as stage managers for both shows. Funding for Shakespeare in the Park has been made possible by The Puffin Foundation, as well as corporate sponsorships from Arbor Terrace Senior Living; Davis, Saperstein & Salomon, PC; Bogota Savings Bank; Five Star Senior Residences; Glenn L Photography, and Wendy Wineburgh Dessanti of Weichert Realtors.

Press Cordially Invited To All Performances

This new Shakespeare in the Park debuts on August 3 with a performance of Macbeth. Three witches entice Macbeth with prophecies of success. Consumed with a lust for power, Macbeth and Lady Macbeth develop bloody ambition with deadly consequences.

Macbeth will be performed in repertory with Twelfth Night: Following a storm that separates her and her twin brother, Viola disguises herself as a boy called Cesario. While working for the Duke of Illyria, Orsino, Viola begins to fall in love him. Orsino, however, is in love with Olivia, who begins to fall for Cesario (Viola). Meanwhile, the members of Olivia's household trick her butler Malvolio into thinking Olivia is in love with him. Comedic confusion ensues in this raunchy 17th century spring break rager!
