Two free family matinees scheduled
The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival will present four upcoming performances of a family friendly play, So Please You, including two free matinees. Based on the story of a servant named Dennis who appears only once in As You Like It, the farce traces his underdog’s journey as a struggling actor who discovers friends, foes and plenty of tomfoolery on his climb to stardom. Conceived and directed by Zachary Fine, the production stars members of the HVSF Conservatory Company.
There will be two evening performances at Boscobel at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 15, and Monday, Aug. 29 (the latter preceded by a family workshop at 6 p.m. and followed by a “Caught in the Act” discussion with the cast). There also are free matinees at 2 p.m. on Tuesday, Aug. 16, and Tuesday, Aug. 23. Purchase or request tickets at hvshakespeare.org.
