Grab a picnic, your favorite beverage, and your friends and family and enjoy our next Free Concert on the Lawn on June 30 with Exceeding 55. And our first play;The Complete Works of Shakespeare Abridged, is opening July 5. This zany comedy will have you laughing from start to finish and even on your way home.

Music on the Lawn: Exceeding 55, June 30
Time: 12 pm to 2 pm
Place: Valhalla Grand Lawn
Exceeding 55 was formed in 2011 and specializes in a folk rock blend of beautiful 3 part harmonies creating their take on a variety of songs from the 60s forward with an occasional original thrown in. You will find yourself with a big smile as you hum along, tap your toes and even get up and dance to a style that evokes a time when “peace and Love” wasn’t just a cliché.
The Music on the Lawn Series is made possible by a grant from the El Dorado Community Foundation.
The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)
Written by Adam Long, Daniel Singer, and Jess Winfield
Dates/Times: July 5-7 & 11-13 at 7:30 pm, and on July 13 at 2 pm
Place: Boathouse Theatre
Cost: $18 online/$20 at the door
The Bard meets the Three Stooges. See the play that became a worldwide phenomenon, earning the title of London’s second-longest-running comedy after a decade at the Criterion Theatre. In 97 minutes you will be exposed to all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays by three actors. This Boathouse production breaks with tradition by making two of the actors girls! (Well, we didn’t actually make them girls, they already were, we just cast them in the show.) If you don’t like fast paced, witty, and physical comedies with a smidge of improvisation, then do not see this play.
“This irreverent deconstruction of Shakepeare’s work makes a dilly of poor Willy. A fantasia of zany energy that throws together Monty Python-ish drag and Mel Brook-ish anything-for-a-laugh gags.”
Michael Musto, New York Daily News
Due to the ribald and bawdy nature of the bard, this play is considered PG13
