Shakespeare Family Festival 2012

Some general photos of the festival this year, which is a free event at Millenium Park in Creve Coeur ....


Characters from various plays roaming around, in this case Romeo and Juliet.  Each set of characters did a 30 second version of their play.

Kinetic Tapestry interactive circus.  This was a calm moment in their area.  In addition to helping kids walk the line (which was wildly popular) they had plate spinning and juggling.  And did fire breathing during the play.

American Recorder Ensemble.

Olympia Fencing.

Two artists ... I didn't figure out which one was who, but one was painting, and another doing caricatures.

Karl Kindt, the storytelling knight, shown here in the children's activity area (kids could make shields and ... well, really, I don't know what all they did there, although it seemed like the adults in charge were having a blast ).

Capering Roisters demonstrating Morris dancing.

Of course, the main event was Much Ado About Nothing, which was performed at 11am and 6pm.  More about that in another post.

And afterwards a cast party at our house, featuring all the leftover Smoothie King smoothies, which were soooo good after a long day.  Plus, of course, other food, and lots of running around blowing off steam after a stressful week.  Also, wedding cake for Claudio and Hero, and Benedick and Beatrice.

Once again the weather was really lovely.  What a great event.
