SUMMIT, NJ - The Summit Free Public Library’s sixth season of Shakespeare on the Green will feature 'The Shrewd Mechanicals' performing Verily, Madly Thine, a medley of The Bard of Avon’s plays, mixed with a few contemporary authors whose work has been inspired by Shakespeare. The event will take place July 11, beginning at 7 p.m.
The 60-minute program about falling in love, will celebrate and mock the victims of Cupid’s arrow as 'The Shrewd Mechanicals', a tight-knit group of young actors, present a modern twist on some the classics. Mixed with a little night music, the performance is designed to entertain the whole family.

In the event of inclement weather, the performance will be held at the Central Presbyterian Church, located at 79 Maple Street.
