Barn brings Shakespeare to the park



BAR HARBOR — The Barn Arts Collective will perform William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night” at Grant Park (Albert Meadow) on Saturday, Aug. 27, at 2 p.m.

Audience members should bring a blanket or chair to sit on.

Nan Lincoln of the Mount Desert Islander said of last year’s performances, “as perfect and polished as previous performances of ‘Twelfth Night’ that I’ve seen have been, they were no more delightful than the zany version launched by the Barn Arts Collective.”

The play, free and open to the public, is sponsored by Acadia Community Theater and the Jesup Memorial Library.
