MIDSUMMER at Powderhorn

There are trees in Powderhorn Park with little doors carved in the trunks.  This is just one of the many inspirations in this park.  The Strange Capers’ production of MIDSUMMER starts at the gazebo and travels to a shaded grove, as actors traverse hill, dale, bush, and goose poop to bring this magical tale to life.  This is a much busier park than Boom Island (our home in 2009) and we’ve already had audiences of camp kids, teen bikers, and picnicing mothers with their brood observing our messy rehearsals.  There is a diversity in the neighborhood that truly reflects the audience that we aspire to reach. As we battle the heat, the humidity, various wildlife, and the challenges of this physical production, we cannot help but to be in awe of its natural beauty. Today  I discovered that exits are infinite, only marked by the entrance of another.   I am always amazed at how the outdoors, and now Powderhorn, continues to teach me how Shakespeare can be done.
