Ga. Shakespeare announces 2012 season

ATLANTA -- After being brought back to life, thanks to generous donations from its army of fans, Georgia Shakespeare is pleased and proud to welcome the Bard back to Atlanta this summer.

The program's 27th season will begin in May with a new event called Shakespeare in the Park, which replaces Shake at the Lake. The first production, The Tempest, will run May 9-13 at the Legacy Fountain in Piedmont Park. All shows begin at 7:30 p.m., but audience members are more than welcome to arrive early and bring picnic dinners.

The rest of the season includes:

Illyria: a Twelfth Night Musical
June 6-Aug. 5

Much Ado About Nothing
June 21-Aug. 4

The Importance of Being Earnest
July 5-Aug. 3

The Emperor and the Nightingale
