The American Shakespeare Center will perform two classics at Transylvania Nov. 7 and 8; tickets available to the public

ASCLEXINGTON, Ky.—Actors from the American Shakespeare Center (ASC) will perform “A Midsummer Night’s Dream” on Monday, November 7, and “’Tis Pity She’s a Whore” on Tuesday, November 8, in Carrick Theater at 7:30 p.m.

The ASC strives to recreate the festive sense of community that delighted patrons of Shakespeare’s Blackfriars Theater during the Elizabethan and Jacobean eras. Instead of using elaborate sets and electronic wizardry, the innovative company focuses on presentation, performing with the house lights on and speaking directly to the audience.

ASC has honed its art since 1988, performing in 47 states and five foreign countries. This will be the  group’s first appearance in Lexington.

Through the generosity of the William R. Kenan Jr. Charitable Trust, free tickets, two per person, are available at the William T. Young Campus Center (corner of Broadway and Fourth Street), beginning Tuesday, October 18 from 6-11 p.m. Hours for the campus center after Tuesday are: Monday-Thursday, 8:30 a.m.-11 p.m.; Friday, 8:30 a.m.-8:30 p.m.; Saturday noon-8 p.m.; and Sunday 1-11 p.m.
