JCPRD wants to say “thank you” for your support of our parks, programs, and special events with a free night of FUN!
Join us for a free, laid back party in the park! Bring your blankets, chairs, a ball/Frisbee, and enjoy time with your family and friends. Sing, dance, or relax as you listen to the Short Round Stringband and The Matchsellers, for two hours of old timey, feel good, foot stomping music, and then a movie!
Disney’s O BROTHER, WHERE ART THOU will follow!
Movie Description: Loosely based on Homer’s “Odyssey,” the movie deals with the picaresque adventures of Ulysses Everett McGill and his companions Delmar and Pete in 1930s Mississipi. Sprung from a chain gang and trying to reach Everett’s home to recover the buried loot of a bank heist they are confronted by a series of strange characters–among them sirens, a cyclops, bank robber George “Baby Face” Nelson (very annoyed by that nickname), a campaigning governor and his opponent, and a blind prophet who warns the trio that “the treasure you seek shall not be the treasure you find.” [Rated PG13]
Food, wine, and beer will be available for purchase, so bring your wallet and ID!
Theatre in the Park is located at 7710 Renner Road, Shawnee. Main gates on Renner Road open at 5:00. Theater bowl gates open at 5:30
