“The Merchant of Venice” is the story of money lending, religious faith, and husband finding. In Venice we meet Shylock, a merchant and father, and Antonio, a merchant, who have money-lending issues, which result in the call for a literal "pound of flesh" as repayment. In the neighboring city of Belmont we meet Portia, a wealthy unmarried lady whose marriage prospects are dictated by her dead father’s wishes. Directed by Anna Jennings. Featuring Jeff Shehan, Aaron Gotzon, Frank Presler, London Smith, Khalid Johnson, Liz Swick, Timothy Willett, Erik Johnsen, Kelsey Matthias, Heather Hare, Jen Morris, Sean Hill, and Ronald Davis and Zachary Weaver.
Due to long-range weather forecast, this year's presentation will be held inside the Alcott Theater.
Admission is $5 with a nonperishable food item for a local food bank. Alcott Arts Center Theatre, 180 S. 18th St, www.alcottartscenter.org. (suitable for everyone)
