Calendar Features

As You Like It is as merry and satisfying a Shakespeare play as ever there was, and Free Shakespeare in the Park unveils its opening performance this weekend. The daughter of an exiled duke and her friend dress up in disguise (no Shakespeare comedy is complete without a little crossdressing) and escape to the Forest of Arden, where a quirky group of misfits enjoy each other’s company. Shenanigans ensue. And, of course, romance of the most convoluted and confusing kind. It’s a delightful, silly romp that is perfect for a summer evening.

Free Shakespeare in the Park’s As You Like It opens this weekend with performances at 6pm Saturday and Sunday, Aug. 1 & 2, at Amazon Community Center, 2700 Hilyard St.; FREE.

There are so many reasons to love Jurassic Park. Even for those of us who never got into trouble for conducting fossil digs in the backyard as a child, the appeal of the dinosaur is pretty much self-explanatory. But beyond that, Jurassic Park gives us so much more — a dash of hesitant ’90s feminism, a comical Jeff Goldblum, a blend of CGI and animatronics that still dazzles our jaded 21st century eyes. And don’t even get me started on John Williams’ majestic score, perfectly encapsulating the quiet dignity of a brachiosaurus. In so many words, life finds a way, and you don’t want to miss it.

Jurassic Park shows at dusk, around 8:30pm Friday, July 31, Ruff Park, Spfd. FREE.
