Shakespeare's "The Winter's Tale" At The Alex Theatre This Friday, 06/29

From the Little Candle Theater Company:
A rarely-produced Shakespearean epic, “The Winter's Tale” is a story about a jealous suspicion that tears family and friends apart and can only be resolved after the passage of many miles and many years. How fitting that a play about the healing power of time will be presented in a theater that has consistently welcomed many generations of audiences through the decades--from the Art Deco glory days of Los Angeles to the present. 
Tickets for “The Winter’s Tale” are $20 (balcony) and $35 (mezzanine and orchestra) and can be purchased in person at the Alex Theatre Box Office, The Americana at Brand Ticket Outlet, or Glendale Community College; by phone at 818-243-ALEX (2359); or online at alextheatre.org/patrons/boxoffice.php. Show starts at 8 p.m.

I am collaborating with the ACTUAL GLENDALE BEAR to design Glendale Bear buttons that will be available at The Alex on Friday.  "The Winter's Tale" famously includes the stage direction "Exit, pursued by a bear."
