Seattle’s GreenStage will be performing their interpretation of two classic Shakespeare plays this Friday and Saturday evenings at the Wallingford Playfield. The performances are free and a fun way to spend a summer evening outside with family and neighbors.
Bring a picnic, enjoy our local park and celebrate local talent!

From the GreenStage Website:
Founded in 1989, GreenStage is performing for its 29th year in 2017 and is Seattle’s longest-operating Shakespeare theater. With our 2014 production of Othello, we completed Shakespeare’s canon, having performed 39 of the Bard’s 37 plays. (We count a couple that may have had other pens involved, but in which Shakespeare probably had a hand.) While no official records are kept on this, research out of the Cincinnati Shakespeare Company suggested that GreenStage may be one of the few, probably about a dozen, theater companies in the world to accomplish this achievement.
GreenStage’s mission is to inspire audiences to engage with live theater as part of their recreation. Our productions are free, fun, and family oriented. We believe in presenting Shakespeare’s plays simply, focusing on the text, story, characters, and relationships in the play.
A core value of GreenStage is that all of our performances are always free of charge. We joyfully accept contributions, but nobody is required to pay to see a play .
