Love’s Labour’s Lost A Rollicking Hit!

Thank you to everyone that came out for the eighth annual Shakespeare in the Park at Depot Square Park in Peterborough, New Hampshipre!  


Every aspect of the program has been an absolute pleasure from the rehearsal process beginning on July 7 and ending with our final performance on August 9.  


The entire run of four shows was greeted with beautiful, sunny, exceptional weather, and all performances were able to be delivered to smiling audiences in a beautiful summer Peterborough evening!


Thanks to the production staff Rob Koch, Mia Moravis, Wendy Almeida, Chris McCartie, Emma Keating, and Garrett Zecker. 


Special thanks for the production go to April Gregg, Heidi Hadley, Molly McDowell, Kath Allen, Judy Koch, Gayle Gearhart, Hope Taylor, Keith Colarusso, and the board of directors, which includes Scott Gardner in addition to Rob Koch, and Garrett Zecker thanked earlier.
