O Romeo! Free Shakespeare in Deering Oaks Park

Written by: Shannon Bryan

Teenagers. Of the opposite sex. In a park. Without their parents.

It could be a recipe for disaster. Or it could be a performance of Romeo & Juliet in Portland’s Deering Oaks Park. Fenix Theatre Co. is bringing Shakespeare back to the park starting on July 18. The free performances run on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday evenings at 6:30 pm through August 10.

And while you’re probably already familiar with the plot, you’ve likely not seen it the way Fenix does it.


Also, while the performances are free, bring some cash to donate, so the Shakespeare keeps coming back.
