Advisicon Outreach – OPSFest Shakes Beer Festival Performance
August 18 @ 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Advisicon Outreach loves to support events in our local community! We are committed to sharing as many as possible to provide a place for YOU to see what’s happening and get involved.
The Original Practice Shakespeare Festival (OPSFest) presents a free performance of “Much Adoe About Nothing” at the Shakes Beer Festival at Say Ciao! Bistro. The Story: The Prince visits Leonato with his evil brother John. Beatrice and Benedick feud. Claudio plans to marry Hero. Folks gull Beatrice and Benedick into thinking the other loves him/her. John makes Hero appear unfaithful. Claudio spurns her at the altar. Hero fakes her death. John’s plot is revealed. Everybody marries. OPSFest brings no-cost repertory Shakespeare to parks and venues all over the Portland Metro area.
The company uses the original practice techniques of Elizabethan England: limited rehearsal, scrolls in hand, audience interaction, and an onstage prompter. For more information about our season, please visit us at https://www.opsfest.org/.
