Evenings in Olde Seville Square Returns!
Evenings in Olde Seville Square concert series is back starting Thursday May 23!
After sponsoring more than 350 free concerts over 25 years and creating an annual Pensacola tradition, the Pensacola Heritage Foundation announced last year it would no longer be able to host the series. Begun in 1988 to support the PHFs efforts to preserve local history, the concerts took on a life of their own. The cost and volunteer effort needed to sustain the series became overwhelming, and the group looked for another organization to take over.
Enter Events Pensacola, a local non-profit formed to keep the free concert series alive with the blessing of the PHF, which has allowed it to take over the iconic name, Evenings in Olde Seville Square. A series of 12 free concerts in Seville Square is planned for this year, beginning May 23 and running through Aug. 1.
The season will kickoff Thursday, May 23 starting at 7PM with the McGuires Pipe Band and the Pensacola Civic Band. For more information, contact Jehan Clark at 850-261-2200 or www.sevilleconcerts.com
The Tragedy of Macbeth
Something wicked this way comes when The Tragedy of Macbeth graces the stage.
Pensacola Little Theatre and Levin, Papantonio, Thomas, Mitchell, Rafferty & Proctor, P.A. present a special production of The Tragedy of Macbeth as performed by the Southeastern Teen Shakespeare Company.
In this chilling tale of witchcraft, four evil hags inspire Macbeth to plot the murder of the king and thereby gain the throne of Scotland and immortality. Conscience-stricken once the deed is done, he is haunted by ghosts and hounded by enemies.
The Tragedy of Macbeth will be performed June 7-9 and 14-16. Friday and Saturday performances are at 7:30 p.m. and Sunday performances are at 2:30 p.m. Tickets for general admission are $10. Tickets are available through the Box Office Monday through Friday from 10:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., in person, by phone at (850) 434-2042, or online at PensacolaLittleTheatre.com
Pensacola Little Theatre is proudly celebrating their 76th season.
