It Takes Concentration

Green Show 2

We finally got to our annual Shakespeare In The Park production on Friday. This year it's Twelfth Night and it was terrific. We tried to go opening night but, despite arriving two hours early (people have picnic dinners on the grass), it was so crowded we went home. Tried again two weeks ago but the show was canceled due to severe thunderstorms and tornadoes. The third try worked.

I usually take a lot of pictures of the green show, 90 minutes of entertainment before the play itself. Didn't get much this year because we tried a new offering, a superb four course dinner on the lawn above the stage. Only had time for a few shots of perenial favorite Juggling Jeff. I've taken lots of pictures of him through the years around town. This one is my favorite.

At the bottom, the stage just before the second act.
