Coos Bay Shakespeare in the Park will present the well-known Shakespeare comedy Much Ado About Nothing two consecutive weekends in June — June 17, 18, 24, and 25 – beginning at 3 p.m. at Mingus Park Amphitheatre, 725 N. 10th Street, Coos Bay. The production uses Shakespeare’s dialogue placed in a corporate office environment for a modern twist on the classic play.
The venue is outdoors and is lawn seating so audience members should provide their own chairs or blankets and dress appropriately for the weather. There is no charge but donations will be gratefully accepted to help cover costs of scenery, costumes, etc. The actors, director, and all those who are involved in the productions are volunteers who come from the community. Currently in its eighth year of presenting free Shakespeare plays, Coos Bay Shakespeare in the Park is a 501(c)3 non-profit who strives to provides quality, live theatrical productions of Shakespeare’s works accessible to the community with an emphasis on those who would not otherwise have this opportunity.
