Shakespeare on the Green & Green Expo at The Ridgefield Playhouse returns on on Sunday, July 22.
The Green Expo runs from 12 – 4 p.m. and a family friendly version of Shakespeare’s "Hamlet," produced and performed by Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival, will take place live under the tent at 2 p.m. Tickets for Shakespeare on the Green and Green Expo are free but must be reserved by calling the box office at (203) 438-5795, with a limit of six tickets per family on a first come, first served basis. Tickets will be held at the box office until 1 p.m. the day of the show.
This haunting tragedy invites the question, Where should a young man turn when his father is killed, his mother remarries, and the life he knew has been taken from him? At its heart, "Hamlet" is a play about young men and women struggling with loss, death, and the inescapable feeling that they don’t fit into the world around them. The Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival’s production runs for 90-minutes.
The experts who will be participating in the Green Expo will explain how to implement sustainability in our workplace practices, in how we run our homes and how we can make everyday choices that are not only good for us but also for the environment. This “green” entertaining and educational event will include food samples, food for purchase, product information and demonstrations.
The Ridgefield Playhouse is located at 80 East Ridge Avenue, parallel to Main Street, in Ridgefield, Conn.
