Original Story:

A new sign of semi-normality returning to the East End is upon us this coming weekend with Northeast Stage’s annual Shakespeare in the Park production in Greenport’s Mitchell Park slated to return Sunday, Aug. 22 at 7 p.m.

This year’s production is “Twelfth Night,” directed by A.D. Newcomer with Colin Palmer. While there will be just one performance in the park, the show continues with five performances in September at Holy Trinity Church at 768 Main Street in Greenport.

The comedy “Twelfth Night” takes place in the kingdom of Illyria, where twin brother and sister Viola and Sebastian are shipwrecked and separated, leading to a series of absurd events.

The cast includes John Bradley, Michael Drozd, Justin D. Harris, Huck Hirsch, Charles E. Lehner, Christian Lepore, Nancee Moes, Colin Palmer, Peter Peterson, Wendy Peterson, Lin-Marié Salvato, Mark Sisson, and Rebekah White.

The September performances will be held on Friday and Sunday, Sept. 10 & 12, and on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 24, 25 & 26. All performances are at 7 p.m.

The performances are free to the public, but Northeast Stage is gratefully accepting donations to continue to bring live theatre to the North Fork.
