BUFFALO, NY (WKBW-TV) — If you have been hankering for an outdoor rendezvous with Shakespeare, your wait is almost over. The 2022 Touring Company of Shakespeare in Delaware Park is putting the finishing touches on this year's production called "The Bard's In Our Yard".
The company includes four actors: Sue McCormack, Phoebe Wright, Josh Wilde and Sean Patrick Ryan. Directed by Norman Sham with Tioga Simpson stage managing, the show will be appearing all over Western New York. Sue says "I'm excited, this is my first Shakespeare experience".
The show is about an hour long and incorporates scenes from a variety of Shakespeare's plays. Sean says he grew up watching Shakespeare in Delaware Park and adds "I think it's so important that every aspect of our community and corner of our city gets to hear Shakespeare and see it."
