Tickets for the performance can be purchased in advance at KECU and Completely Kentucky starting May 20th. Tickets are also available at the park prior to each evening’s performances. Tickets are $10/$8 in advance, and $12/$8 at the gate.
Josephine SummerStage is a unique partnership between the visual and performing arts. This year’s production marks a first, with JSP Artistic Director Melanie VanHouton creating the sculpture that inspires the work of director, designers and actors. Each Josephine Summerstage production is grounded in the natural landscape of the park and also foregrounds the natural world, embracing the outdoor environment in which the story unfolds.
The acting company includes returning performers Chris Bartlett (Georgetown), Clint Gill (Shelbyville), and Meg Caudill, Michael Mayes, Erica McClure, Keith McGill Spencer Scruggs, Brian West (Louisville); Katie Raymond (Baltimore); and Frankfort students Natalie Dufour and Annabelle Renshaw. Joining the company for the first time are Lexington-based Alana Ghent and Christopher Rose and Louisville area-based performers Ebony Jordan, Christophe Leong and Doug Sumey.
Each Josephine Summerstage production is grounded in the natural landscape of the park and also foregrounds the natural world, embracing the outdoor environment in which the story unfolds. Specific themes in ”The Winter’s Tale” that Ellis and VanHouten are exploring include redemption, jealousy, and the cycle of destruction to renewal (emotional, physical and seasonal) embodied, in part, through the juxtapositions of the worlds of Sicilia and Bohemia.
Audience members are encouraged to arrive early in the evening to picnic & explore the grounds of Josephine Sculpture Park. Take the opportunity to view more than thirty sculptures on exhibition especially including the temporary exhibit entitled “Else-ing Elsewhere” June 5-7 and bring lawn chairs, blankets, etc. for a comfortable evening of Shakespeare under the stars. The park entrance is located at 3355 Lawrenceburg Rd, Frankfort, KY. JSP is less than three miles south of I64; parallel to US HWY 127S.
The Kentucky Employees Credit Union proudly supports the arts in our community and returns to Josephine SummerStage as title sponsor for the third year. Additional production support comes from the KY Arts Council, The national Endowment for the Arts and SouthArts whose funding also supports the free interactive public concert by SummerStage Composer Phyllis Free, featuring her unique expressive percussion, on the sculpture entitled “Watch” by Bridget Beck on Sunday June 1 from 2-3pm at JSP, which is NOT TO BE MISSED!!
