(Courtesy of Black Box PAC) In February, The Black Box PAC Shakespeare in the Park Bergen County team was preparing the lineup for 2020, their third season of free outdoor performances, before the pandemic hit. All involved have been closely monitoring the situation, and given current guidelines BBPAC has been given the go-ahead to move forward, although the season may look a bit different.
Throughout COVID-19, Black Box PAC teamed up with the Englewood Public Library, as well as The Bristal of Englewood, to present free weekly readings of condensed Shakespeare works.
Now, actors will be moving outside, from mid-August through the end of September, as the ever-evolving situation allows. In these public venues (libraries and parks in Tenafly, Englewood and Teaneck), “The Tempest” and “Measure for Measure” will be performed outdoors without fixed seating. Audiences will wear masks and bring their own chairs and will set up at a distance from other parties. Local officials will be in attendance to ensure distancing is taking place.
BBPAC strictly follows all up-to-date health protocols as dictated by local, state and national authorities.
