Bloedel is part of the show for BPA’s ‘Midsummer Night’

A tip for anyone planning to attend the current run of “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” being presented by the Bainbridge Performing Arts Shakespeare Society in the meadow at :

Go early.

The gates to the meadow open at 6 p.m. for the 7 p.m. “curtain,” and an early arrival reaps multiple benefits. First, you get a better pick of where to plop down your lawn chairs, blankets or whatever. Second, you have time to go take a stroll. The adjacent forest is the perfect mood-setter for Shakespeare’s faerie-land comedy, and the grounds of the normally by-admission reserve are0717_KSFE_Midsummer1 breathtaking.

An added plus is that the reserve has waived its normal no-food restriction, which means you can bring a picnic with you for consumption at your seats.

(On a personal note, if I hear about any of you not cleaning up after yourselves, I will come and find you, and the chiding will be severe …)

Here’s the review of the July 10 performance:

Information: 206-842-8569, bainbridgeperformingarts.org. From what I hear, performances (Thursdays through Sundays at 7 p.m.) are selling out quickly, if they haven’t already.
