Shakespeare on the Green to return to community center

Timeless comedies come to the Issaquah Community Center lawn in July and August as Seattle Shakespeare Co.’s Wooden O returns for Shakespeare on the Green.

Catch performances of “Twelfth Night” and “The Winter’s Tale” at the community center, 301 Rainier Blvd. S.

“Twelfth Night” is a bewitching comedy centered on a shipwrecked — and cross-dressing — castaway in a strange land. “The Winter’s Tale” unfolds as a suspicious king accuses the queen of high treason.

Catch “Twelfth Night” on the community center lawn July 12 and “The Winter’s Tale” on Aug. 2. Organizers encourage attendees to bring blankets, chairs and picnic baskets for the shows.

The city Arts Commission and King County cultural service agency 4Culture present the Shakespeare on the Green performances at no cost to attendees.

“I’m so very thrilled that many of our shows will involve so many talented artists who are also audience favorites,” Seattle Shakespeare Co. Artistic Director George Mount said. “It’s a wonderful roster of plays, and I can’t wait for us to share them with our patrons.”
