The Online Community for Culver City – The New Scene
It has become quite the tradition: each Saturday and Sunday in August, the Actors' Gang theater troupe performs a family-friendly adaptation of Shakespeare play in Media Park in Culver City. In 2011, it was a vampire vs. zombie version of Romeo & Juliet. In 2012, we got a Star Wars version of The Tempest, with Obi Wan Kenobi as Prospero, Princess Leia as Miranda, C3P0 as Ariel, and Jabba the Hutt as Caliban. Last year, they put on a superhero version of Twelfth Night.
This year, it seems that they're performing a My Little Pony version of A Midsummer Night's Dream (to go along with the slightly more traditional version of the play being performed inside the theatre. That one's directed by the troupe's Artistic Director, Tim Robbins).
The kid-friendly versions are free -- and are always a lot of fun. Check it out on Saturdays and Sundays in August at 11 am. in Media Park. (Media Park is located at 9091 Culver Blvd. Where Culver Blvd. meets Venice Blvd.)
