THEATER | 'The Two Gentlemen of Verona' 

The popular annual summer Shakespeare in the Highland Bowl series continues this month with a staging of one of the Bard's more obscure comedies, presented through a new cultural lens. Rochester Community Players and Wallbyrd Theatre Co. will present "The Two Gentlemen of Verona," a story about two young men traveling abroad in search of adventure and romance, with a Bollywood twist. To ensure cultural authenticity, the performance groups have partnered with Perinton's India Community Center and Kalidas Theatre Company.

Attendees are encouraged to bring lawn chairs, blankets, and bug repellant. Refreshments will be sold on site, but you're free to bring your own. The show is recommended for ages 10 and older. Some special events associated with this production includes a Wednesday, July 11, pre-show reception and fundraiser in the Olmsted Lodge on Reservoir Street, across South Avenue from the Bowl (6 to 7:30 p.m.); and the show on Friday, July 20 will be performed in ASL.
