April 14, 2015

Louisville – Councilman Rick Blackwell (D-12) announces “Shakespeare in the Parks” will bring its 2015 touring production of Macbeth to Riverview Park on Sunday, April 19th beginning at 12:00 p.m.

The admission price is very reasonable: it’s free!

“Riverview Park joins a growing list of places bringing more performing arts to the people of Southwest Metro Louisville,” says Blackwell. “I am excited to partner with Kentucky Shakespeare again this year and to bring the arts to  our community.”

Kentucky Shakespeare will bring a seven member company to Riverview Park for a 90 minute production of Macbeth. It’s the classic story of ambition and contradiction about a man who desires to be king and will let nothing stop him from achieving that goal.

Kentucky Shakespeare is a not-for-profit charitable organization and professional theatre company. It is the oldest free Shakespeare Festival in the United States and has been serving the Louisville area for the last 54 years.

“I am proud to partner with PRP High School’s Drama Department for this event as well,” says Blackwell. PRP Drama will have ticket sales available for their upcoming performance of Zap and will also have light refreshments for sale.

Riverview Park is located at the end of Greenwood Road off Dixie Highway (formerly known as the Greenwood Boat Docks).
