Lake City Mini Park Treated to Shakespearean Comedy
On Thursday, August 9th, LCFF partnered with Randy Wiger from the Seattle Parks Department and Greenstage theater company to bring the first ever “Shakespeare in the Lake City Mini Park” to about 30 audience members who seemed thoroughly entertained. Greenstage actors and audience members were real troopers as the first 20 minutes of the production were challenged by the urban sounds of asphalt repaving in the parking lot adjacent to the park. In true professional form, the show went on, and Shakespeare’s “Two Gentlemen of Verona” was enjoyed by all. Based on this initial effort, LCFF is committed to bringing it back. It was a special event for Lake City and one we hope you will strongly consider joining us for in the future. Thank you to all that came out to support.
