Shakespeare Orange County pay-what-you-will Thursday

Shakespeare Orange County has three final performances of The Comedy of Errors coming up this weekend, Thursday – Saturday August 18 – 20. Did you know that they also receive a grant from the Garden Grove Community Foundation that helps support their “Pay What You Will” Thursdays? For anyone who would like to see the show but may be short of funds, Thursday is the night to go and enjoy Shakespeare outdoors and take advantage of the program.

Garden Grove Community Foundation – you get a big shout out for supporting live theatre in your community!

And, before the show you can enjoy The Green Show featuring the wacky and hilarious writings of Joshua Snyder. The Green Show begins at 7:30 p.m. before every performance. There is also a Pre-Show Lecture with Dr. Kent Lehnhoff before the show on August 20th. Arrive at the theater early and you’ll hear the Chapman University English professor  talk about Shakespeare, his writing, his age, and the history of the play. These lectures are FREE, and begin at 7:00 p.m. in the courtyard. Dr. Lehnhoff will hold the final discussion of The Comedy of Errors before the performance on August 20th.
