Opens Thursday, June 5, 8 p.m.
If you think an Oklahoma summer is hot in shorts and T-shirts, try taking it on in full costume under stage lighting. For that reason, you won’t find a more dedicated cast and crew than Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park’s gang of thespians and techs tackling the elements and the Bard’s unabridged works for another summer season of shows at Myriad Botanical Gardens’ venues, 301 W. Reno Ave., Oklahoma City. The season opens with Twelfth Night, the romantic comedy of secret identities, a love triangle, warring kingdoms and yellow stockings opening at 8 p.m. Thursday, June 5, and running through June 29. The season continues with Antony and Cleopatra (July 3-18), Pericles (July 24-27 at the Oklahoma Civic Center Music Hall) and Macbeth (Sept. 11-27 at Oklahoma City Community College Performing Arts Center). Tickets for Twelfth Night are $10-$15. For more information and details about special related events, visit www.oklahomashakespeare.org.
