Final weekend: free theater in the park!

THE EMPEROR OF THE MOON

June 15–17 & 22–24, 7:30pm | Maritime Heritage Park

This weekend, Thu/Fri/Sat. Jun 22–24, we will hold the final three performances of our first-ever outdoor production, right down the steps from Sylvia Center in Maritime Heritage Park!

All performances are FREE to the public, no tickets necessary! (If you would like to support our free theater program, please consider a donation to Sylvia Center for the Arts!)

ABOUT THE SHOW:
Aphra Behn’s The Emperor of the Moon is a comical story about a moon-obsessed Doctor who is protective of his daughter and niece, and the young ladies’ scheme to trick the good Doctor into allowing them to marry by passing off their two suitors as lunar royalty.

A very silly, family-friendly farce playing in the open air in the amphitheater at Maritime Heritage Park.
