Members of the cast for ITW’s production of Shakespeare’s The Tempest will be on hand to add a theatrical element, announce the artists and provide some interesting facts and trivia about Woodstock throughout the evening.
Food will be available by Country Boy BBQ & Catering and Dump City Dumplings. A selection of cold beverages, craft beers, wine and Woodstock themed mixed drinks will be available.
Brad Hills of ITW had this to say. “We’ve had successful music events here before and this one just seemed like a natural seeing that The Tempest is set at Woodstock.” Stan Roach of Roach Productions added “Brad and I have been talking about doing a music series for quite awhile. Themed music events provide artists and music lovers a variety of styles and sounds and this just seemed like the perfect time to get it started”.
