Event Details

Leontes thinks Hermione is stepping out with Polixenes. Hermione’s not. Hermione dies (or not?). Their child Perdita is abandoned (or not?). Turns out Hermione doesn’t and Perdita’s not. Autolicus cons. Leontes repents. Perdita marries a prince. Everyone lives happily ever after. Except for Antigonus. Antigonus gets eaten by a bear.

ORIGINAL PRACTICE SHAKESPEARE FESTIVAL (OPS Fest) is back in the parks for a 14th season, and they’re expanding their tour! This year, OPS Fest is adding Washington Park to their ever-growing list of locations! If that’s near you, or you’re excited to see some free Shakespeare done in the old, old-school way in a brand new place, join OPS Fest at Washington Park on August 19 and 20.

This summer, OPS Fest starts the season on Tuesday, June 21 at 9:00pm with the audience favorite Midsummer Midsommer at the top of Mt. Tabor. They then jump directly into WIL Fest and perform all 25 of the Shakespeare plays in their lineup each weekend throughout the summer. **If the COVID-19 pandemic causes public gatherings to halt temporarily, OPS Fest will perform the scheduled show(s) online. Check in at https://opsfest.org to keep current!
