A beautiful night for Shakespeare in the Grove

ARTFARM's Hamlet will have its final performance of the first week tonight in the Cedar Grove on the campus of Middlesex Community College. It may be hot in town, but up on the hill it is cool and pleasant -- catch the show during perfect outdoor Shakespeare weather.
Performance is at 8 pm sharp. Tonight is also FAMILY NIGHT -- kids 12 and under get in for $5, and there will be activities for young people starting at 6:45.
This 2 hour Hamlet is fast-paced and to the point, with ARTFARM's Artistic Director Marcella Trowbridge as the Prince if Denmark. This is a great opportunity to introduce your kids to Shakespeare, but parents of younger children should be warned that Hamlet contains sword fights, ghosts, murder, suicide and violence.
Additional performances will be Wednesday through Sunday, July 19 - 23.
