Here’s Where You Can See Kentucky Shakespeare’s 2019 Parks Tour

William Shakespeare’s tragedy “Macbeth” is the origin of one of the most well-known lines in theater: “By the pricking of my thumbs, something wicked this way comes.”

And Kentucky Shakespeare’s production of the play is coming this way to parks in Louisville and other Kentucky cities, and Indiana. The company will travel and perform from April 6 to May 25.

Kentucky Shakespeare’s version is 90-minutes and will be performed by six actors.

Started in 2014, the Parks Tour initially visited nine parks in Jefferson County; this year, Kentucky Shakespeare will visit 28 parks.  

“This season, we branch out even further, bringing free Shakespeare in the Parks to Mt. Washington in Bullitt County and Bowling Green plus serving some local neighborhoods for the first time including Smoketown and Klondike Park,” said Matt Wallace, producing artistic director. “We’ll again have backup rain spaces for each location, too, so you can join us rain or shine.”
