Shakespeare in the Park
Frenchtown: The Momentum Theatre Troupe from Bar Harbor, Maine, performs Shakespeare and Chekhov from a traveling stage-truck at Old Frenchtown Field in Frenchtown at 6 p.m. on Sunday and Monday, July 20 and 21.
Both performances are free.
Families are invited to come early and picnic in the park ahead of the performances.
Old Frenchtown Field is on Harrison Street across from Frenchtown Elementary School.
MTT's 2014 repertoire includes “Juliet and her Romeo,” Momentum Theatre Troupe's reworking of the Shakespeare classic; Chekhov's one-act “The Proposal”; and an original piece inspired by Orwell's 1984.
The Proposal and 1984 are directed by guest directors Ryan Collins and Malik Rumeau.
All three plays will be performed both nights. This is Momentum Theatre Troupe's second summer performing in Frenchtown.
"This is really wonderful, accessible theater," said Frenchtown Mayor Warren Cooper. "The truck morphs into an impossible-to imagine performance space, with actors racing across the roof, popping out of unexpected doorways and hatches and striding out into space along unexpected platforms."
"Kids and adults watched last year's performances with eyes wide and jaws dropped," the mayor said.
