GreenStage, the Seattle-based theater group specializing in free outdoor Shakespeare productions, will bring “Love’s Labour’s Lost” to Battle Point Park at 3 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 3.

The group’s stated mission is to inspire audiences to engage in live theatre as part of their recreation. They wish to instill and foster in the community an appreciation for live theater, with a strong belief that theater can be enjoyed in the same spirit as a picnic or a ballgame.

Productions are free and family friendly.

“Love’s Labour’s Lost” is a classic tale full of love and humor.

King Ferdinand of Navarre and his three noble pals make a solemn vow to steer clear of women and devote themselves to three years of earnest study and clean living. Their plan is thrown out the window upon the arrival of the Princess of France and her entourage of three highly eligible young women. Resorting to goofy disguises and frat-boy hijinks, our heroes do their best to win the favor of the ladies.

As Seattle’s Shakespeare in the Park Company, and the city's longest-running Shakespeare company, GreenStage is committed to presenting quality productions of classical theater in a manner that is available to all - performing for free in order to reach the largest audience possible. They rely on voluntary donations from contributors and the of generous support of park departments, arts organizations, and businesses.
