Williamson County Public Library
For the first time in its 29th season of Shakespeare in the Park, the festival will bring one of its summer productions to Williamson County. A Comedy of Errors will run September. 29 through October 2 at Academy Park, formerly the campus of Battle Ground Academy. General admission to Williamson County Shakespeare in the Park is free to the public, with a suggested $10 per person donation. Pre-show… entertainment begins at 6:30 p.m. with the play at 7:30 p.m. More information is available by clicking on the festival’s website, http://www.nashvilleshakes.org/.
The Comedy of Errors, Shakespeare’s shortest play, gets a uniquely local spin with original music by David Olney, Lari White, Stan Lawrence and Jack Kingsley. The show is one of the festival’s signature works as it is set in 1960s Nashville. This family-friendly performance is directed by Hicks, who has served in a variety of roles at the festival since 1990.
Educated at Point Park University in Pittsburgh, Hicks moved to Nashville in 1980 to perform at the Opryland Theme Park. She was an original company member of the Tennessee Repertory Theatre, and was among the founders of both the Darkhorse Theater and of People’s Branch Theatre.
Hicks’ talk is part of the series “Vanderbilt at the Library,” in which the university’s professors and community partners share their expertise monthly with the public on a wide range of initiatives via the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Vanderbilt.
The Williamson County Public Library is located in downtown Franklin at 1314 Columbia Avenue.
