With Loridans' backing, the move to the new venue will more than double seating capacity. In years past, tickets often sold out the morning of the show. Audience members started standing in line at 6:30 a.m. for that evening's performance. "The demand has always been remarkable," said producing Artistic Director Richard Garner. "We believe the expanded size and beautiful setting will help us take a big step for in making Shake at the Park one of Atlanta's favorite annual cultural events."
Under the new format, a number of tickets and VIP tables will be available to reserve with no waiting in line the day of the show. For the cost-conscious, the free tickets will continue to be available the day of the show. For those who want convenience and the ability to plan in advance, paid tickets are available in advance.
The Loridans Foundation's gift covers about half of the cost of producing The Tempest this summer. Georgia Shakespeare will be seeking other corporate and foundation partners to support the remaining cost each year.
It sounds like the only downside is the loss of the rhyme "Shake at the Lake." How about, I dunno, "Bard on the 'sward?"
