As You Like It with Wine

I adore outdoor summer theatre.  But even better is outdoor summer theatre in a gorgeous setting and good wine to sip while enjoying the performance. Once again those of you who feel the same will have the chance to do just that.  This just in from Boomie Pedersen and the Hamner Theatre:

Summer Greetings from the Hamner Theater!

It’s been a while since we had anything exciting to announce, but now we do:

Following the success of last year’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the Hamner Theater is proud to announce the Shakespeare Winery Tour 2013 production of As You Like It, a comedy of love and identity, family and friendship, honor and character.  This year’s tour travels to 7 venues, including *opening weekend at Del Fosse (Fri., Aug. 16 and Sun., Aug. 18); *Cardinal Point (Fri.,Aug. 24 and Sat., Aug. 25); *Labor Day (TBD); *Pollak (Fri., Sept. 6 and Sat., Sept. 7); *Mountain Cove (Sat., Sept. 14 and Sun., Sept. 15); on the levee at *Scottsville with James River Brewing Co. and Thistle Gate Winery (Fri., Sept. 20 and Sat., Sept. 21); and finally at *Albemarle Ciderworks (Fri. Sept. 28 and Sat., Sept 29).  Friday and Sat. shows are at 7pm; Sundays are at 5pm.  Tickets are $12 (children under 10 are $5 and under 5 are free) and are available at the gate.  Most venues will have some seating available but patrons are encouraged to bring blankets, chairs, picnics and bug spray.  No outside alcohol allowed at wineries. There is a built in raindate this year for each winery, generally the Sun. after a Fri./Sat. or the Weds. after a Sat./Sun. – details may be found on the Hamner Theater website which is updated regularly –www.thehamnertheater.com.There will be two free preview shows in Crozet, Weds., Aug. 14 and Thurs., Aug. 15 at 7pm…1118 Crozet Avenue, across the street from Tabor Church, second house down from the Community Garage.  Bring chairs, a blanket, the children…

This year’s production features returning company members Jon Cobb, Alex Davis, Emma Givens, John Holdren, Jim Horstkotte, Kerry Moran, Rick Steeves and Alexey Zielinski and new company members Christian Anderson, Allison Bowers, Rose Harper, Bit Pressley and Kurt Vogelsgang.  Carol Pedersen and Boomie Pedersen share the director’s chair once again. Set design is by J. Taylor; costume design by Amy Goffman and original music composed by Emma Givens.

Local wine, local theater, local beauty…a perfect way to spend a summer evening.  I hope you’ll join us!

Cheers,
Boomie
