Iowa City, IA – Riverside Theatre in the Park is entering the final week of its 2012 summer season with 5 more performances of Shakespeare’s As You Like It and The Merchant of Venice. The 17-performance summer season opened on June 15 and will close July 8.

 

As You Like It by William Shakespeare and directed by Theodore Swetz will be performed this Thursday, July 5 at 8 p.m., Friday, July 6 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, July 8 at 7 p.m. In one of Shakespeare’s greatest comedies our heroine and hero flee an oppressive court for the beautiful and healing Forest of Arden.

The Merchant of Venice by William Shakespeare and directed by Kristin Horton will be performed tonight, Tuesday, July 3 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, July 7 at 8 p.m. One of Shakespeare's less frequently produced plays, The Merchant of Venice introduces characters rich in complexity, humor and, most of all, flaws.

Post-performance Talkbacks will be held after both performances of The Merchant of Venice.

Don't miss your last chance of the summer to escape with an evening of live theatre under the stars at Riverside Theatre in the Park!
