To Be or Not To Be in Kerrville: There’s No Question About It!

Friday, June 3, and Saturday, June 4, Playhouse 2000 and the City of Kerrville present the 5th edition of “Shakespeare in the Park” at Louise Hays Park in downtown Kerrville in the heart of the Texas Hill Country. And that’s not all – wine enthusiasts will be happy to know that Friday night’s showing will also be the site for Kerrville’s regular “First Friday Wine Share” hosted by Peggy and Gary Stork.

“Listen to many, speak to few.”



Encouraged to bring blankets, lawn chairs and picnics, lover’s of Hamlet will rejoice in this year’s adaptation of the play whose tragedy entails that of the “melancholy Dane” and namesake protagonist. Organizers have identified that although such plays often feature adult themes, this performance will be suitable for the whole family. Admission is free and show time is at 8 p.m. daily.

“This above all: to thine own self be true.”

Directing this performance, along the banks of the beautiful Guadalupe River, is Sarah Distel, who is commanding a cast of veteran actors having appeared in numerous local theater presentations, not to mention several prior “Shakespeare In The Park” productions.

“As merry as the day is long.”



And as noted, the Friday, June 3rd performance will also be the site for the regular First Friday Wine Share, during which guests are invited to arrive at Louise Hays Park at 6 p.m. with a bottle of their favorite wine to share with other wine – and play – connoisseurs. The setting is the perfect backdrop for the wine share, and event hosts feel the two pair quite well (pun intended).

“Get thee to…” Louise Hays Park
