Shakespeare House Party

Something wicked this way comes – to a park near you – thanks to the support of Shakespeare in the Park lovers, who gathered recently for ACA’s annual House Party/fundraiser for Shakespeare in the Park.

Hosted by Judy and Chris Leich in their beautiful home overlooking Spy Pond, our Shakespeare supporters noshed, nibbled, and swapped stories about their favorite Shakespeare in the Park memories over the past 10 years.

David Atkins from Arlington Children's Theatre's Teen Shakespeare Troupe made for a very convincing Macbeth!

In a special preview of this summer’s production of Macbeth by Arlington Children’s Theatre on July 10, David Atkins presented three riveting soliloquies from the show.  Then Arlington’s jazz legend Eva Balazs entertained the group from the piano, quickly joined on guitar by Nat Leich in some wonderful impromptu music-making!

Eva Balazs and Nat Leich made beautiful music together, to the delight of the party guests!

Thanks to everybody who came out to support Shakespeare in the Park.  We hope we’ll see you for one (or both!) shows this summer:
