Free Theatre in the Parks returns to the City of West Hollywood with The Romantics, a hilarious 19th century romantic fantasy by Edmond Rostand, playing at Kings Road Park for six-performances-only beginning Saturday, September 10, 2022 at 3 p.m. and running Saturdays and Sundays through Sunday, September 25, 2022. Kings Road Park is located at 1000 N. Kings Road. This free theatre experience is presented by Classical Theatre Lab with the City of West Hollywood’s Arts Division.
Two well-meaning but meddlesome parents desire to see their children fall in love and marry and thereby combine their adjoining properties, but they fear that an arranged marriage will provoke resistance, so they agree to pretend they are mortal enemies and construct “a wall” to separate their gardens. When the kids find out their dreams have been carefully choreographed by their calculating parents, they split up and go their separate ways. They each discover the hardships of life and decide to return to the love of their lives. This sweet romance is highlighted with live music, a sword fight, a kidnapping, and a dashing and handsome stranger.
The Romantics is directed by Suzanne Hunt and will feature cast members Johnny Austen, Maaren Edvard, Carlo Figlio, Maegan McConnell, Katie McKewin, Donald Wayne, and Alexander Wells.
The setting of this play will be perfectly suited in the adjoining gardens at Kings Road Park. With a running time of 75 minutes, it can be enjoyed by the entire family. Attendance is free; seating is first-come, first-served. RSVP is requested at https://theromantics-weho2022.eventbrite.com
