SOUTHERN SHAKESPEARE COMPANY (SSC) is thrilled to, once again, bring our unique FREE Shakespeare in the Park Festival to Cascades Park. This year, the SOUTHERN SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL expands to four days and will join the ranks of some of the best Renaissance Festivals in the Southeast region on May 12th and 13th. Visitors will experience the magic and mystery of our jugglers, illusionists, stilt walkers, and fortune tellers; the spectacle of armored combat; the taste of medieval food; and even learn a new skill, be it blacksmithing, weaving, or belly dancing.
Visitors will enjoy the multiple programs and performances leading up to our Mainstage production of William Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, performed in true Renaissance style, on the Capital City Amphitheater stage at Cascades Park. #FreeShakespeareinthePark #iHEARTtally #theARTSlivehere Performances will begin at 7:30PM each evening May 10-13, 2018. Renaissance Festival begins 4pm Saturday and Sunday (May 12th & 13th)
