Enjoy a performance of “The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged),” as presented by The Glimmer Globe Theatre. This 100-minute farce incorporates all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays (and many sonnets) with performances by local actors Michael Henrici, Danielle Henrici and Jason Francey. It includes some crude humor (the Bard was no saint) so parental discretion is advised. Performances will be held at the Lucy B. Hamilton Amphitheater and guests are encouraged to bring lawn chairs and blankets. At Fenimore Art Museum, Cooperstown at 7 p.m., Thursday, July 15. Call 607-547-1400 or visit

Come one, come all for an evening of high-flying fun at the circus. Best of all, it’s completely free, so bring your lawn chairs and have a fun night out. Sponsored by the Susquehanna SPCA and hosted at the Cooperstown Center on Phoenix Mills Road, Cooperstown. At 5 and 8 p.m., Friday, July 16.
Call 607-544-2600.
