Our production of Richard III in Odell Park has been getting a phenomenal response from Fredericton audiences, thrilling a capacity crowd last night! Only four performances remain, tonight through Sunday, July 9 at 7:30 (but arrive by 7:15). The weather is going to be great tonight, but with chances of rain in the forecast for Friday and Saturday, you might not want to wait to come take in this exciting immersive production of Shakespeare’s famous dark tragedy. In the meantime, check out some great photos of the show by Michael Holmes-Lauder. Above: Kira Chisholm as Lady Anne and Miguel Roy as Richard. Below: Robbie Lynn as the Duke of Buckingham, Miguel Roy as Richard, and Sharisse LeBrun as Catesby (background), with Telina Debly as Prince Edward and Lee Thomas as Richard, Duke of York (foreground).
We’re taking Canada Day off, but will be back with BOTH of our productions July 2 as part of our second Twinbill Shakespeare Sunday! At 2 PM in Barracks Square it’s your LAST CHANCE to catch the hilarious comedy of The Comedy of Errors, which has been a huge hit with our audiences. Please bring a lawnchair or blanket to sit on, as our regular bleacher seating has been commandeered by Canada Day activities. Then at 7:30 PM head over to Odell Park to experience the immersive nighttime forest adventure of Shakespeare’s dark tragedy, Richard III.
And remember that if you attend both our shows this year, your second play is HALF-PRICE with your ticket stub from the first show! Enjoy Canada Day, see you tomorrow, and let’s all think sunny thoughts in the meantime!
Tonight (Thurs. June 29) is our final regular evening performance of The Comedy of Errors, and also your last chance to avail yourself of our Picaroons Bar in the Barracks, with a selection of Picaroons craft beers available to sample while you watch the show! Our final performance of the play is set for Sunday, July 2 at 2PM, but with a rainy forecast for the weekend, we suggest you don’t delay and come tonight if you can! (Also, our regular bleacher seating won’t be available on Sunday, so viewing will be better tonight). Audiences have absolutely been loving the show, so don’t miss out!
There’s a chance of rain again tonight too, but we are pretty determined to get tonight’s show in, even if it means delaying our start time until 8 or even 8:30 if need be so that showers can pass through. With a breezy show run time of 90 minutes, a late start will still not mean a late night. See you at the show, or else! (you don’t want to disappoint Antipholus, do you? He has a way of getting angry..)
Big thanks to our friend Chris Giles for putting this video together. The Comedy of Errors runs until July 2. Learn more about the production here.
In partnership with our friends and sponsor Picaroons Traditional Ales, we will be hosting licensed performances of The Comedy of Errors on June 27th, 28th, and 29th (Tues.-Thurs.) in partnership with our friends and sponsor Picaroons Traditional Ales. Three shows only, so don’t miss it! Join us on these nights and you can enjoy a selection of Picaroons craft beers while watching the show!
