This summer, Shakespeare meets synchronized swimming in Fluid Movement’s annual water ballet “SHARKESPEARE.” July 29-30 at Druid Hill Park pool and August 4-6, at Patterson Park pool.
Sharkespeare and his trusty assistant Shakesbear will herd their unruly crew of actors, swimmers, and ne’er-do- wells on- and off-stage at the Globe Theater Water Park and Renaissance Festival while trying to do justice to the great Bard’s work.
From a Tempest/Gilligan’s Island mash-up to a Hamlet soliloquy set to a jaunty ukulele tune, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
What happens if there is rain in the forecast for a show?
When the weather is inclement, the first concern of Fluid Movement and Baltimore City Aquatics is that our performers and audience members are safe. In the case of lightning, thunder, and/or rain, pool managers and our producers will work together to decide whether a performance needs to be delayed or canceled. Because summer storms are unpredictable, often this decision will be made immediately before the start of the show.
Rain alone will usually not stop a show, but nearby lightning, thunder, or high winds might. If it's raining, bring a jacket because umbrellas can't be used during a performance.
If a show must be canceled, we will honor your tickets at another performance either later that day or another day. We will announce at that show (and later on Facebook and via email) what your options are.
Tickets are not refundable, so we will do our best to let you honor them at a future show. If you can’t, we hope you can recruit a friend or family member who can use your tickets to enjoy our performances.
