ECTC performing free Shakespeare on Thursdays

Special to The Log

Grand Boulevard’s Coastal Culture series continues its ongoing calendar of events with Theatre Thursdays, presented by Emerald Coast Theatre Company.

ECTC presents “Taming of the Shrew,” a comedic adaptation and family friendly take on William Shakespeare’s play every Thursday from June 1 through Aug. 3 at 8 p.m. in Grand Park. The performances are free and open to the public.

This fast-paced show has something for everyone — a hilarious Punch and Judy puppet show, a sassy leading lady and a handsome nobleman who works to win her affection. Bring a lawn chair, sit back, and enjoy a free night of entertainment. Abrakadoodle Art Education and Parties will offer free, preshow children's activities from 7 to 8 p.m. In the event of rain, the show will be performed in Emerald Coast Theatre Company's space at 560 Grand Boulevard, Upstairs.
