Texas Creative Arts Academy will present an all-teen production of "A Midsummer Night’s Dream" at the first-ever "Shakespeare in the Plaza" in Coppell event on Friday, June 22 at 7pm. With City support, TCAA’s production of one of Shakepeare’s best-known comedies will be presented FREE to the community in Town Center Plaza, located directly behind City Hall at 255 Parkway Blvd.
“We want the entire community to come out, support our youth in live theatre, and enjoy an evening under the stars,” remarks Donna Park, Executive Director of Texas Creative Arts Academy. “The uniqueness of this particular event is that the show is comprised entirely of youth and teens. It’s our organization’s mission to educate and create performance opportunities for our youth and we are thrilled to be able to perform in this outdoor venue. The City has been extremely enthusiastic and helpful making it come to life.”
Shakespeare in the Plaza will take place on Friday, June 22 beginning at 7pm. The “gates” will open at 7pm with a pre-show of entertainment. A Midsummer Night’s Dream will begin at 8 pm. Picnics, blankets, and lawn chairs are encouraged and recommended. Guero’s Mexican Grill will be onsite as the exclusive restaurant vendor, as well.
“Our hope is to have this become an annual event for the City of Coppell, and help raise arts awareness community-wide. As a member of the Coppell Arts Council, we hope this event can do just that” said Park.
While admission to the event is free to the public, an event like this takes sponsor dollars to make it happen. TCAA is still looking for local businesses to help support this community arts event. If you are willing to help or know someone who is, please contact Donna Park at 972-304-0160 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
