Family Fun: Chalk it Up
to Shakespeare, 1 to 4 p.m.
Children and families are invited to an afternoon of hands-on art exploration during this free, drop-in program. Inspired by favorite scenes and quotes from Shakespeare’s plays, all are invited to grab a bucket of sidewalk chalk and create a drawing.
On Family Fun Days youth 18 and under are admitted to the museum free all day with one paid adult admission.
Pre-Performance Talk with Douglas Lay, 2:30 p.m.
Join the director of Cymbeline, Douglas Lay, for a talk about Shakespeare and why his work is still relevant today. As part of the program, Mr. Lay and company actors will engage the audience in mini-acting sequences.
Performance: Cymbeline, 3 p.m.
Pull up a blanket or chair and enjoy a free performance of Cymbeline by Portland Actors Ensemble — part of the company’s annual Shakespeare-in-the-Parks series. Brimming with romance, mystery, intrigue, and comedy, Cymbeline celebrates the enduring nature of love and its triumph over chaos; often referred to as the bard’s greatest romantic fairy-tale, it’s the perfect play to introduce Shakespeare to audiences of all ages. Join us afterwards for a post-performance question and answer session with the actors and director.
This program is sponsored by Art Dodd and Diane Plumridge, and members of the Sam Hill Society.
