TN Shakespeare Company to Perform Outdoors in Downtown Parks

October 3rd, 2017

Tennessee Shakespeare Company, the Mid-South’s professional, classical theatre and education organization,  announced its Tenth Anniversary Performance and Education Season and two performances will take place in Downtown Memphis.

The season is front-loaded with performance events and over-full with expanded Education outreach programming.  Depending on the schedule of construction in its new home, TSC will announce end-of-year performance plans in early 2018.

“We need our classical artists today, too.  Shakespeare encourages us to ask questions, to listen closely, to think deeply rather than condemn or judge or separate.  The entertaining arena of Shakespeare and his plays is where each of us gets to meet ourself.

- Founder and Producing Artistic Director Dan McCleary

Free Shakespeare Shout-Out Series Sponsored by Evans/Petree, P.C.

They’re free, fun, fast, and for everyone! TSC specializes in environmental theatre, but here we take it to another level to celebrate our tenth season with all of the Mid-South: 11 performances of 3 productions at 10 outdoor/indoor locations throughout Shelby County. Ideal for families and picnics. Audiences will get to watch the actors re-shape each performance for each venue. No tickets or reservations needed. Patrons are encouraged to come early for available seating.

The Shout-Out production happening Downtown is Shake(s), Rattle, & Roll (directed by Stephanie Shine).

This fast-paced 45-minute show creatively links Memphis music that came out of Stax Recording Studios and Sun Studios in the 50s and 60s to the works of Shakespeare! Discover chart-topping, foot-stomping Shakespeare featuring Jillian Barron and Zach Williams in this musical performance.
