William Shakespeare's Long Lost First Play

Monday, July 15, 2019


Free outdoor theater will return to the City of Shoreline this August with the King'sPlayers Theater Group's production of "William Shakespeare's Long Lost First Play."

The productions will be held in the outdoor amphitheatre behind City Hall at 17500 Midvale Ave N.

The King'sPlayers produced plays in Shoreline around five years ago. Their last big production was "The Music Man" at Shorecrest High School. They did a couple of smaller productions at Shorecrest in the "Black Box" theatre.

When the Aurora Theatre group disbanded in July of 2018 (see Local Theatre Spaces at Risk) it appeared that the outdoor productions were at an end.

The King'sPlayers didn't disband but they did lack the funds to stage a production.

However the City of Shoreline has been working with the King'sPlayers to mount a summer production.

This year we've been able to work closely with the city and will be putting on the show: "William Shakespeare's Long Lost First Play (abridged)" - it's an hilarious play about what happens when three performers attempt to put on a play that is thousands of pages long and, kind of, contains all the major characters from Shakespeare's future plays.

The dates for the shows are Thursday, Fridays, and Saturdays, August 8, 9, 10; August 15, 16, 17 and August 22, 23, 24 - all at 7pm.
