Shakespeare on the Green
Produced by the Nebraska Shakespeare Festival
(NSF), this drama series stages two of the Bard's plays for three
weeks each summer in a natural outdoor amphitheater on the campus
of the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Pre-performance workshops
on Elizabethan stage craft are offered, and a Renaissance Greenshow
of roaming troubadours and jugglers also precedes the play. Patrons
are encouraged to bring their picnic suppers and lawn chairs.
Alternating between Shakespeare's comedies, tragedies, and
historical works, the performances are free and open to the public.
Project documentation consists of the Shakespeare on the Green
A Midsummer Night's Dream on video and 16
slides with accompanying descriptions.
