A Company of Fools will once again bring their outdoor theatre to Fisher Heights Park – Tomorrow, Thursday July 18. The show begins at 7 pm. Bring a blanket or chair, your friends and family, and be prepared to enjoy Shakespeare’s “Romeo & Juliet”, as adapted and directed by Nicolas Leno.
For 17 summers, the “Fools” have been presenting their “Torchlight Shakespeare” in Ottawa parks. This year, a carnival setting creates the backdrop for the Fools’ fantastical take on the world’s favourite romance. Swords are paired with water pistols, and live music is played by a carnie barker with a megaphone. Audiences will be transported to an adolescent paradise of dangerous pleasure.

Show starts at 7 pm on Thursday July 18 and admission is Pay-What-You Can. (Suggested Donation: $15-$20.)
