Shakespeare play set


PARIS — Shakespeare in the Park returns to Twin Lakes Park in Paris with a free performance of Shakespeare’s final comedy “The Tempest” at 6 p.m. Saturday. Using an underscore of sea chanteys, actors with Stone Soup Shakespeare will portray a motley crew of shipwrecked characters lost on an island.

People are asked to bring a lawn chair and nonperishable food items to be donated to the local Compassionate Food Ministry.

Alasdair Hunter will join Stone Soup Shakespeare from Glasgow, Scotland, to direct the production.

For more information, visit or call the Paris Public Library at 463-3950.
