Shakespeare performance to return to Winthrop Rockefeller Institute

PETIT JEAN MOUNTAIN, Ark. — This summer, all of the Winthrop Rockefeller Institute’s front lawn will be a stage.

On Saturday, June 20, the Arkansas Shakespeare Theatre will enact an outdoor performance of As You Like It at the Institute. The performance, which will be free and open to the public, will include the full plot of As You Like It abridged into a family-friendly version. While outdoor chairs will be set up at the Institute for the upcoming event, onlookers will also be able to utilize blanket space on the lawn depending on their preferences. The River Rock Grill will provide food for purchase.

“The 2014 performance of A Comedy of Errors was a big success,” said Dr. Marta Loyd, executive director of the Institute. “We are proud to offer such an exceptional experience to the residents of Petit Jean Mountain, Morrilton and the rest of the Arkansas River valley.”
