Behind the Curtain with Commonwealth Shakespeare Company
July 27, 2012
The Boston Center for Adult Education (BCAE) is continuing its popular “Behind the Curtain” series with an exclusive backstage tour of Commonwealth Shakespeare Company’s outdoor theater on the Boston Common followed by VIP tickets to a performance of Coriolanus. The series, which has already gone inside the Boston Ballet’s performance of Romeo and Juliet and the Boston Opera House’s production of South Pacific, is aimed at providing students with a one-of a-kind look inside Boston’s historic theaters and the world-class performances that take place there.
On Friday, July 27th, 2012 from 6:30PM-10:00PM, BCAE students will enjoy the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company’s performance of Coriolanus, a powerful and timeless drama showing a symbolic connection between the governed and the governors. Shakespeare’s portrayal of government, politics, power, and corruption are what differentiates this play from his others and will be sure to capture the audience with the strong connection to politics today. The students of the BCAE will get a backstage tour of the outdoor stage, access to an exclusive pre-show talk with the cast and crew of Coriolanus and exclusive VIP seating (chair and blanket) for only $32.00!
Don’t miss this opportunity to go one step further during this year’s production and take a peek behind the scenes of the play. Registration is necessary. Please visit bcae.org or call 617-267-4430 to sign up today! The Parkman Bandstand at the Boston Common is located at 145 Tremont Street, Boston, MA 02108.
