A Sweet Fourth Friday

A Sweet Fourth Friday

 

I always look forward to Fourth Friday in the spring: the weather is nice, the sun is up late into the evening, and a diverse array of people stroll the streets of downtown in search of something a little different from the usual.

 

We certainly tried to provide that at the STS booth this past Friday.  In addition to exhorting people to spin our trusty wheel of Shakespearean insults and sharing details of our upcoming summer productions (The Merchant of Venice and Measure for Measurereserve your tickets now!), we held our scheduled music rehearsal on the sidewalk of Hay Street to offer a preview of the delights that await the audience for MoV.

 

Early on, when visitors were sparse, we played some well-loved songs from past shows. If you saw The Cherry Orchard, The Tempest, Bottom’s Dream, or HamLIT, chances are you heard something familiar. Then, as the crowd grew, we moved on to the songs that we’ve been working on for the last few weeks—the hand-clapping, foot-stomping, folky jams that you expect from the WoCo as well as our take on songs by Rihanna, Drake, and Prince.

 

It was joyful. It was fun.  We saw old friends and frequent audience members alongside people who had never heard of Sweet Tea Shakespeare.  One of my former students who happened by sang harmony on a song that he knew, and it reminded me just how accessible and inviting this company is.  We welcome you to come see us, to sing with us, and to enjoy a lovely late-spring evening in each other’s company.
