Providence. Roger Williams National Memorial will be hosting a performance of William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream by the Flying Vegetables Theatre Troupe on Saturday, September 5, 2009 at 3:00 pm. 

 

Flying Vegetables Theatre Troupe, a miscellany of teens and young adults from the four corners of Rhody and the wilds of Southern Massachusetts, is committed to free theatre, by the people, for the people.  This is their first production.  They have been very well received thus far, having been bombarded with a wide assortment of edible projectiles at every venue.  For more information about the troupe, please visit http://flyingvegetables.blogspot.com

 

September 5th   is also a Waterfire© night, so pack a picnic dinner to have in the park and plan to spend the afternoon soaking up a little Shakespeare and the evening in beautiful downtown Providence.    You won’t want to miss this one!

 

For more information on this and other park programs, please contact Park Ranger Sparkle Bryant by phone at 401.521.7266 or by email at sparkle_bryant@nps.gov.

 

Roger Williams National Memorial, a unit of the National Park Service, commemorates the life of the founder of Rhode Island who was a champion of the ideal of religious freedom.  For more information about Roger Williams National Memorial, please visit http://www.nps.gov/rowi/

Roger Williams statue with Ted Williams' face

Roger Williams' statue at Roger Williams University actually features the face of baseball legend Ted Williams. Sculptor Armand LaMontagne previously made a Ted Williams statue for the Baseball Hall of Fame and figured the two must be related in some way. No known image of Roger Williams exists.
