07/27/13  This Sunday at 7 p.m., Encore’s Music in the Park features—not music–but a shipwreck, confusion, mistaken identities and it all takes place on the lawn at the Young Amphitheater—not on stage but on the grass in the midst of the audience. After the success of last year’s compelling performance of Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival’s Young Company, there was no doubt the group needed to return.

‘The Comedy of Errors’ is presented by a company of actors drawn from the University of Notre Dame, Saint Mary’s College and universities from across the nation. This open-air performance is free of charge and makes for a dreamy midsummer’s night!

The Young Company is a direct outgrowth of the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival’s mission to provide exceptional and unparalleled educational opportunities in a theatrical setting to gifted students from the University of Notre Dame and Saint Mary’s College. Young Company members have graduated from the program to enjoy careers in acting, design and production all over the country!

  To learn more about the group and a synopsis of Shakespeare’s ‘Comedy’, log on to their website at http://shakespeare.nd.edu/notre-dame-shakespeare-festival/young-company/  

 All Music in the Park concerts are in beautiful Centennial Park in the Young Amphitheater at Baker and Randolph Streets. Due to construction, enter on Randolph. Bring a lawn chair, your favorite beverage and a picnic to enjoy this special event in a delightful setting. If you don’t want to cook, Delta Theta Tau will once again be offering refreshments—each performance with specials that reflect the group performing.

Gates open at 6:00 with the performance at 7:00 and it’s FREE!

Encore is grateful to the Centier Bank, Gibson Foundation and U.S. Granules Corporation for sponsoring the Music in the Park Series.
