The outdoor Shakespeare show in Pittsburgh features 6 students from Lincoln Park

PITTSBURGH – Six students from Beaver County will attend “The Bard in Bloom” this Saturday as part of the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater’s open air series on Flagstaff Hill in Schenley Park.

The 75-minute 2pm performance, presented by the Pittsburgh Public Theater, celebrates young artists who have participated in the organization’s Shakespeare Monologue & Scene Contest.

Local attendees include Macie Capel, Bailey Edgar, Cherish Erb-White, Elijah Groves, Cameron Tino, and Grace Vensel, all from the Lincoln Park Performing Arts Charter School in Midland.

Reserved seating for the show is available for a $ 25 donation. All proceeds go to the Empty Space Project and PPT’s Education & Engagement programs.

Others can bring a chair or blanket and drop onto the lawn to witness for free. 22 winners and finalists of the Pittsburgh Public Theater’s annual Shakespeare Monologue & Scene Contest bring the bard’s most beautiful poems and cult figures to life.
