Township Arts in the Park features dance work highlighting pandemic
THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (September 25, 2020) – The Woodlands Township Parks and Recreation Department will host Arts in the Park featuring “Thoughts Had On The Waterway” on Saturday, September 26, 2020, at 3 and 6 p.m. at Waterway Square, 31 Waterway Square Place, The Woodlands, TX 77380.
"Thoughts Had On The Waterway" is an original dance work created by Nicola Bennett, Adam Castaneda and Tory Pierce. Created specifically for The Woodlands Waterway, this 20-minute performance is an exploration of the collective sense of loss the world has experienced as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The work explores the importance of maintaining a sense of connection with the people that matter to us most, even as we find ourselves separated by 6 feet from the nearest person.
The event is presented free of charge to the public with support from The Pilot Dance Project. Performances, approximately 20 minutes, will take place at 3 and 6 p.m.
Coolers, picnic baskets, blankets and lawn chairs are permitted. Glass is prohibited.

Arts in the Park Festival The Woodlands Texas
THE WOODLANDS, TEXAS (September 8, 2020) – Residents and visitors are invited to enjoy a live Shakespeare theatre performance of The Tempest at Northshore Park on Saturday, September 19, 2020. The event, performed by Points North Theatre Company and The Woodlands Symphony Brass, will begin with a pre-show concert at 5 p.m. and theater performance beginning at 6 p.m.
Welcome to a bold new take on The Tempest, William Shakespeare’s comedy adventure, in a performance set in the 1960s (exactly one week before the fated sailing of the SS Minnow). On a mysterious desert island, the magician Prospero - the deposed former ruler of Milan - uses the sprite Ariel to cause a massive storm resulting in a shipwreck in a grand scheme to get his throne back from his usurping brother and to find true love for his daughter Miranda. With drunken sailors searching for survivors, a witch’s evil son planning mutiny, and even a visit from some Roman goddesses, The Tempest provides fun for the entire family, featuring a pre-show concert and music during the performance by The Woodlands Symphony Brass.
Coolers, picnic baskets, blankets and lawn chairs are permitted. Please, no tents and tables. Glass is prohibited. Those planning to attend the performance should practice social distancing, refrain from gathering in large groups and continue following all guidelines established by the CDC when in public spaces and around others outside of your household.
