 July!

Here in Johnstown, July means Shakespeare In The Park.  The brain child of Laura Gordon, this show has gone on for the past 26 years. I have been to The Ashland, Oregon Shakespeare Festival, and can tell you that Shakespeare at Stackhouse Park every July is right up there with the absolute best.  Time was when Laura Gordon turned her 7th Grade English class room into a small Globe Theater.  I remember 7th graders so enthused about Shakespeare  that Elizabethan English was their second language.  This year the presentation is “Much Ado About Nothing”, and again promises to delight.

William Shakespeare

 

“Sigh No More, Ladies…”

(From “Much Ado about Nothing”)

Sigh no more, ladies, sigh no more.
    Men were deceivers ever,
One foot in sea, and one on shore,
    To one thing constant never.
Then sigh not so, but let them go,
    And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
    Into hey nonny, nonny.
 Sing no more ditties, sing no morestackhouse5
    Of dumps so dull and heavy.
The fraud of men was ever so
    Since summer first was leafy.
Then sigh not so, but let them go,
    And be you blithe and bonny,
Converting all your sounds of woe
    Into hey, nonny, nonny.
