Ridgefield Shakespeare on the Green & Green Expo

Aug 03, 2014 03:09AM

First Niagara Bank and The Ridgefield Playhouse will present the ninth annual community event, Shakespeare on the Green and Green Expo, on August 9. The “how to live green” fair runs from noon to 4pm with a performance of Shakespeare’s Two Gentlemen of Verona taking place under a tent for a seated audience at 2pm. The events will be held on the green at The Ridgefield Playhouse.

This free extravaganza is a thank-you from the Playhouse to the greater Ridgefield community, which supports it throughout the year. More than 500 will be able to spend family time experiencing a contemporary rendition of Shakespeare and learn about green living, which means making sustainable choices about what we eat, how we travel, what we buy, and how we use and dispose of it.

The experts participating in the Green Expo will explain how easy it can be to implement sustainability in our workplace practices and our homes and how we can make everyday choices that are good for us and the environment. The event includes food samples, food for purchase, product information and demonstrations.

Tickets are free but must be reserved by calling 203-438-5795 (limit of 5 tickets per family) on a first-come, first-served basis. Tickets will be held at the box office until 1pm on August 9.
