Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park celebrates 30 years of classical theater with wine tasting, complimentary hors d’oeuvres from Paseo Grill, live music provided by members of the acting company and a silent auction at their new home in Oklahoma City’s Paseo Arts District. Founded in 1985 by Jack O’Meara and Kathryn Huey O’Meara McGill, Oklahoma Shakespeare in the Park is a company devoted to presenting the best outdoor productions of William Shakespeare and other classic authors. In its inception, the founders’ vision was supported by a group of art enthusiasts, including Al Bode, and a large cluster of the company’s supporters were based in the city of Edmond. In the summer of 1985, OSP began performing in front of small crowds at Edmond’s E.C. Hafer Park, progressively growing larger each weekend and reaching 500 attendees by the end of August’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. On Thursday, July 16, celebrate with Oklahoma Shakespeare and sip to its success. For more information, please visit
