Royal Oak’s Starr Jaycee Park is a 28-acre park with play structures, a disk golf course, mini-train tracks, ball diamonds and for a short time each summer, the wit and prose of William Shakespeare. Now in it’s 14th year in Royal Oak, Shakespeare in the Park is Michigan’s largest professional outdoor theatre event. This year, there are two productions: Hamlet and The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged & Revised). While the clash of swords is still part of Hamlet, this time Hamlet takes place in the now, because his words and aspirations are always true. The Complete Works takes all 37 of Shakespeare’s comedies and tragedies, with a trio of actors reducing them down to a few key moments, that’s helpless with laughter. 37 plays in 90 minutes. Very fast & very very funny. Hamlet July 31, August 1, 2, 3, 7, 8, 9, 10 Thursday, Friday and Saturday at 8:00 pm, and Sundays at 5:00 pm. The Complete Works (Abridged & Revised) August 2, 3, 5, 6, 9, 10 Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 pm, Tuesday & Wednesday at 7:00 pm. Seating is general admission. Bring a blanket to sit close to the stage, a low lawn chair for mid-lawn seating, or a tall lawn chair for rear lawn seating. Bleacher seating is also available.
