Shakespeare in Fremont Park

Shakespeare in Fremont Park

Shakespeare in Fremont Park is a seven-week program involving community based organizations in South Bend. Focused on the city’s west side, the effort will allow young people to work directly with adults to create, rehearse, and perform a theatre production inspired by Shakespeare. Working and rehearsing indoors, Shakespeare in Fremont Park will perform outside at Fremont Park (1800 Fremont St. at W. Hamilton St.).

2018 Production: A Midsummer Night's Dream
FREE performances: July 26 & 27 at 7:00pm.

Emerging from the mission of the Fremont Park Foundation, which seeks to provide positive activities for young people and adults alike, the community wishes to build on its recent successes (a new splash pad, playground equipment, and new basketball courts), with an offering open to all, which residents can enjoy whether on stage, behind it, or even simply enjoying a show from a blanket or lawn chair.

AUDITIONS: JUNE 11-12, 2018

Community Wellness Partners, 2806 Lincoln Way W, South Bend

Also: Washington High School (May 9, 3-5pm)

Auditions and workshops for actors take place in May and June. Also needed will be interns, musicians, composers, planners, organizers, managers, directors, carpenters, costumers/wardrobe, lighting technicians, sound engineers, and run crew.

Working and rehearsing indoors to perform outside in midsummer, participants will learn, rehearse, and perform a live theatre offering for their neighbors, friends, churches, and families. Rehearsals move outdoors to Fremont Park on July 23 on a City of South Bend temporary stage erected for the play.
