Each summer, The Shakespeare Players offer free performances of a select play from the Bard’s oeuvre at the Highland Park Bowl (1200 South Ave.). This summer marks the 16th annual staging, and the work that was selected is “Richard III,” Shakespeare’s dramatization of the anti-hero sovereign’s Machiavellian machinations, rise to power, and brief, violent reign-storm. The show’s run begins Friday, July 6, and continues through July 21. You can catch one of 12 performances: Friday-Sunday, July 6-8; Tuesday-Wednesday, July 10-11; Friday-Sunday, July 13-15 (sign interpretation on July 14, rain date July 15); Tuesday-Wednesday, July 17-18; and Friday-Saturday, July 20-21. All shows begin at 8 p.m. Since this is an open-air production, if it looks like it might precipitate, call 234-7840 for rain-out information and updates. For more information, call 234-7840 or visit Bring a lawn chair, and bug spray is strongly recommended, because the mosquitoes sure love it in the bowl.
