Welcome to Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks

Bottom’s Up! 

Join the Improv Team of Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks as we, well, improvise a Shakespeare play! Join us on Twitch/Tiltify. Featured performers are: Cat Aceto, Aaron Crutchfield, Craig Snider, Kip Soteres, Jennifer Tober, and Jason A. Young.

Saturday, June 26
Pre-show banter 7:30 pm 
Show starts at 8 pm
Live Twitch/Tiltify link right here on June 26!

Our players will create a Shakespeare-esqe comedy using rhyming couplets, iambic pentameter, song and dance, adjusting, and generally embarrass the heck out of themselves. YOU–the audience–participates, heckles our humble performers, and helps drive the plot. Tune in to chime in, throws a pineapple, or just donate and enjoy yourself as you support Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks’ mission of FREE Shakespeare plays in city parks for all.
