This Friday and Saturday are the closing shows for Waterville Valley’s Theatre Under the Stars/Shakespeare in the Valley. If you haven’t made it to a show this summer, then you MUST find time this weekend.
The Friday, Aug. 9 performance is “Romeo and Juliet.” The theatre’s founder and producing artistic director, Donna Devlin-Young, told me that “Romeo and Juliet is the best show we’ve ever done.” House opens at 6 p.m., curtain at 6:30 p.m. Admission is free (donations encouraged).
On closing night, Saturday, Aug. 10, the theatre offers a double feature with the kid’s camp show written and costumed by local kids campers, followed by the main stage show, “Interactive 3-D Musketeers.” Donna also offers raves about this production, too, and says it’s “a great ensemble this year.” For the Saturday double feature, the house opens at 4:15 p.m. for the kid’s camp show, and from 5-5:45 p.m. for 3-D Musketeers.
The double feature is a fundraising event, so tickets are $10 per person. The theatre anticipates a full house, so arrive early to find a seat.
The theatre’s stage is located adjacent to the Town Square/Ice Arena. Bring your own low-back chair or blanket. Food/beverage welcomed.
