Woodside On The Move Event Woodside Queens

Shakespeare In The Park Captivates Audience

Woodside On The Move Event

Woodside On The MoveWoodside NY / August 13, 2009. On a cloudy warm moist summer evening Hip To Hip Theater Company entertained an audience of about one hundred at the bandshell in Windmuller Park in Woodside. They acted out 'A Midsummer Night’s Dream', the famous Shakespearean play and they did a nice job of bringing the old bard’s play to back life once again.  The play is about love and marriage, set in the woods, where Shakespeare mixes things up with the love of three couples, if one includes the king and queen of the woodland fairies.  In the photo to the right is the King of the woodland fairies and Puck, his not-so-able assistant.

As you can see in the photos we posted to the gallery [there's a link below], the audience was filled with young and old alike, and they seemed to greatly enjoy the comedic performance.  The Windmuller Park bandshell is shown in the photo to the left.
