Shakespearing It Up

We all want our kids to appreciate the greatest writer in the English language, but sometimes the play’s not the thing, especially for the easily distracted seven-year-old representatives of the human experience. Today in Highlands Ranch, the Shakespearean era comes alive — out of the dark theater and into the open air — for Midsummer Merriment, one of the features of the Douglas County Library’s sixth annual Shakespeare Festival. Enjoy Elizabethan characters, live music, juggling, face painting, crafts and — the highlight for those rowdy youngsters — live fencing! Admission is free, and the merry-making runs from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., so round up the family and get thee to Civic Green Park, at 9730 Ridgeline Road, for some classic fun. For more information on this and other festival activities, go to
Sat., July 28, 10 a.m.-1 p.m.
