I can’t say I’m an avid reader of the Culver City Times, but this bit here popped up in my feed, and – good lord – how did I miss this?!

For the last few years, Actor’s Gang has been doing Shakespeare mashups, for free, in the park: Star Wars The Tempest, superhero Twelfth Night, My Little Pony A Midsummer Night’s Dream and this year Harry Potter Hamlet.

I had no idea!  Damn.

They’re shortened versions, mostly intended for kids, but if you can tolerate the otherwise characterlessness of Culver City, it’s a pretty sweet way to spend an hour on a weekend morning while introducing your kids to the Bard.

Since the shows only run in August and since I TOTALLY BLEW IT by not knowing about this before, this weekend is the last two shows.

After that, you’ll have a year-long wait for Dora the Explorer Titus Andronicus.

This Saturday and Sunday, 11am in Media Park – it’s free.
