What to Do This Weekend

The hot summer weekends will soon begin to end, and you may be wondering how spend the rest of your summer. The city of Cincinnati still has plenty of weekend activities you should do with your friends and family. Have you ever heard of Shakespeare in the Park? The Cincinnati Shakespeare Company performs small plays at local parks in the tri-state area for everyone to enjoy. The performances are also FREE! So get ready to pull up your favorite lawn chair with some friends, a cooler filled with chilled drinks and snacks to enjoy while you watch a Shakespeare play. The Shakespeare in the Park Company performs A Midsummer Night’s Dream on Wednesday, August 27 and Macbeth on August 26, 28 and 29. All performances start at 7:00 in the evening, unless otherwise posted, and the park venues are posted on their website, cincyshakes.com.

If plays aren’t your forte, and you would rather stay inside, a movie is definitely the option for you. The popular book, The Giver, has been adapted to the big screen and is showing in local movie theaters. If you are unfamiliar with the book, The Giver is set in a utopian society (“practically perfect in every way”) but gradually turns into a dystopian society. You follow an epic journey with the protagonist, Jonas, while he learns to become the Receiver of Memory. There is pain, perseverance, and happiness that will move you to tears. Also, a bonus, the eye-candy actor Brenton Thwaites, plays Jonas and Taylor Swift also stars in the movie.

Enjoy this Labor Day Weekend and have a great weekend!
