April 5, 2015

Louisville – After a successful inaugural year, Councilman David James and other Metro Council members are partnering again with Kentucky Shakespeare for “Shakespeare in the Parks. Councilman James announces South Central Park will present a free production of Macbeth on Saturday, April 11th.

          “I want to make sure all areas of the district have an opportunity to experience the good works of Kentucky Shakespeare,” says James >”Most people know of productions in Central Park in Old Louisville but South Central Park is also a nice area in our community.”

          Over 54 years, Kentucky Shakespeare, a not-for-profit charitable organization, professional theatre company, and the oldest free Shakespeare Festival in the United States has been offering free Shakespeare in Central Park in Old Louisville during the summer.  

          “Shakespeare in the Parks” will bring a 90 minute, seven actor version of Macbeth beginning at 12:00pm at South Central Park which is located at 2400 Colorado Avenue.

Macbeth is a play of contradiction and ambition. Driven to becoming King, Macbeth will kill all and any that get in his way. He puts his faith in the words and prophesies of three witches and his wife Lady Macbeth is instrumental in driving him to fulfill his ambitions at all costs.

          “This is a great way to get out and enjoy our local parks and at the same time have a chance to see a classic play by one of the world’s most famous and well known writers, performed by a skilled group of dedicated actors and actresses. So come out and join us, so bring family and friends and enjoy a classic in literature but also the beauty of Shawnee Park,” says Hamilton.
