The Actors’ Gang Continues its 11th Year of Free Shakespeare-in-the-Park
The Actors’ Gang continues its tradition of bringing free theatre for multi-generational families every weekend in August at Media Park. Since 2006, over 20,000 people of all ages have enjoyed free adaptations of Shakespeare with a pop culture twist. The Actors’ Gang is proud to present the 11th annual show in conjunction with Culver City’s Centennial Celebration.
Every Saturday and Sunday in August, families are invited to bring a blanket, lawn chairs and picnics, and enjoy a Shakespeare adaptation. This year’s show brings together the 90s classic television series, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers and Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, directed by the company’s Co-Artistic Director, Cynthia Ettinger, with the purpose of inspiring and introducing children to the work of Shakespeare by retelling his stories through the voices of children’s favorite superheroes.
Performances are every weekend in August at 11:00 a.m. No tickets or reservations are needed. Each performance is followed by a popsicle celebration where the audience can meet (and take selfies with) the characters!
For more information, please call 310-838-4264 or visit www.theactorsgang.com to view the complete schedule.
Media Park is adjacent to The Ivy Substation, located at 9070 Venice Blvd, Culver City, CA, 90232.
These performances are made possible by a Culver City Performing Arts Grant with support from Sony Pictures Entertainment and an award from The National Endowment for the Arts.
