Shakespeare in the Park

Every year, one of Shakespeare's plays is staged in Forest Park, and indeed, a special area called "The Glen" is now set aside for this purpose. Last year it was "Merry Wives of Windsor" which I don't really care for very I just went along, had a look at the excellent stage sets and costumes and came home.

But this's one of my favourites.


Shakespeare Festival

kicked off a few days ago, and if you click on the link, you can understand what a great production it is. We were told that 500 volunteers worked very hard to make it happen!

Also, the production is free for the viewing public throughout its run, and it's the sponsors and donations from the viewing public that help to "Keep Will Free" the volunteers chanted last year as they moved amongst the audience with their baskets, "Give of your free will to keep Will free."! St.Louis is fantastic in this respect...all the museums (except selected exhibits), the Zoo, some performances of the St.Louis Philharmonic, part of the seating at the Muny....all are free. This is just incredible!

As we walked back to the History Museum over the slopes of Art Hill, this "sandalwood moon" added to the beauty of the night:

"Sandalwood" is my nickname for

Chandan I was thinking of him!

How lucky I am, to be able to witness a fantastic production in such a beautiful setting as Forest Park!
