Shakespeare on the Green, now in it’s 17th Season, presents “The Merry Wives of Windsor” a comedy directed by Cherri McKay. Friday, Saturday, and Sunday evenings June 5 – 28 beginning at 8pm at the Greenfield Lake Park Amphitheater. The series is always a huge hit during the summer months and this year is sure to be no exception.

In continuing its young artist program, the Shakespeare Youth Company will perform “The Comedy of Errors” also directed by Ms. McCay with performances being staged Tuesday-Thursday June 9-18. All of these performances take place in the recently renovated Greenfield Lake Amphitheater.

If you stroll into the park early you can enjoy your own picnic or grab a snack from the concession stand. Bug spray and battery operated fans might also be a good option on these warm summer nights. Greenfield Lake Amphitheater is located at 1941 Amphitheater Drive, Wilmington, NC (take Carolina Beach Road to Tennessee Avenue, which leads to the amphitheater). All performances are free to the public and donations are always welcome and appreciated.

Landfall Real Estate Forum

Posted by

In February, Landfall Realty hosted a property owner forum where I presented information regarding the real estate economy  generally, with its impact on Landfall real estate in particular.   I appreciate the several attendees who later contacted me to let me know how imformative they found the program.   Some of the owners that attended have asked for an update, and others, not in attendance, have requested another forum.  We are tentatively thinking of scheduling another get together in July.   As always, questions will be welcome.  If you have any suggestions as to what information would be of value to you, let me know.   After the first gathering, several attendees offered to buy me a drink, but the club bar was closed.  We will try to pick a day in July where that will not be a problem.
