The Arc returns for its 7th year at Shakespeare on the Ridge with the bard’s comedy of romantic deceptions, relentless lovers and rambunctious denizens of the Forest of Arden.  Arc founders Teddy Boone and Mark Boergers create a fast-paced, story driven cut of the original classic, directed by Mark Boergers and distilled to 90 minutes.  If you haven’t yet experienced Shakespeare on the Ridge and the Arc’s unique brand of Shakespeare, this is the year!

July 23rd through August 14th, 2016.  Saturdays and Sundays at 7pm. @ Ridgeville Park (908 Seward St.)
