This year's production of Shakespeare in Clark Park is "The Two Gentlemen of Verona."

This year's Shakespeare in Clark Park (SCP) production will be "The Two Gentlemen of Verona." Beginning on July 27, there will be five nights of performances. Each will start at 7 p.m. in the park.

The William Shakespeare play is a comedy, where two friends, Valentine and Proteus, fall for the same girl. Just like in any modern day rom-com, there are a lot of missed connections, mistaken identities and miscommunication.

This year, SCP will be partnering with community dance group Lindy and Blues to bring a dance element to the theater production.

SCP is also partnering with the PSPCA on July 29, when play attendees are encouraged to bring their canine companions for the show.
