The Nashville Shakespeare Festival will host its annual "Lipscomb Night" at Shakespeare in the Park at the Centennial Park Bandshell on Saturday, Sept. 2. The outdoor event will include food trucks, music and a production of The Winter’s Tale in the Bandshell at Centennial Park featuring some of Lipscomb’s own students, alumni and faculty.
The pre-show music will begin at 6:30 p.m. and will feature Lipscomb contemporary music student Corey Miranne. The Winter's Tale, which is one of two shows featured at this year’s Shakespeare in the Park, is directed by Lipscomb theatre professor Santiago Sosa. It features performances by Emily Meinerding ('18), Jonah Jackson ('16) and Andrew Johnson ('15), and will begin at 7:30 p.m. The show will also be interpreted for the deaf by Lipscomb theatre professor Scott Baker.
Admission to the park is free with a suggested donation of $10 to the Nashville Shakespeare Festival. The Lipscomb community is invited to spread out a blanket or set up a folding chair and bring a picnic dinner or take advantage of one of the food trucks. Community members are also encouraged to wear purple to show their Lipscomb support.
