The couple will be married on October 8th following a performance of Love’s Labour’s Lost, a performance that is open to the public as well as to guests of the wedding.

Adirondack Shakespeare Company’s Autumn Festival Season includes Hamlet, Love’s Labour’s Lost, and their original production Songs of the Iroquois: Turtle Island.
