You are sitting on the grass, so bring a blanket and I would also bring a pillow. By the end of the evening my behind was a bit tired. Can't bring chairs if you are planning to sit near the stage.

Bring a stadium chair if you plan to sit in the front. Though enjoyable, the show is long and my back was achy afterwards.

Totally fun. Goldstar seats (er, blankets) are primo. Walk can be much if you are hauling stuff for a picnic so get there early for closer parking.

Description

*She Stoops to Conquer (by Oliver Goldsmith)

*_Opens June 27_

Mr. Marlowe is a catch. Handsome. Rich. Witty. There’s only one problem: among the ladies in his circle he stammers, stumbles and can’t look them in the eye. In the company of a barmaid or a serving-woman, however, he’s a smooth operator. What’s a guy like that to do when he’s called upon to woo the lovely, fashionable, and most decidedly upper-class Kate Hardcastle? And how will the clever Kate respond?

This 18th-century comedy has it all. Romance, mistaken identity, a thrilling chase scene, and a love song to liquor. It’s a big-hearted, exhuberant romp and the perfect way to spend a summer evening in the park.

Macbeth

*_Opens July 5

_ Macbeth, a great warrior, lives in an era of violence. He is beloved by his King and respected by his friends. But when he has an otherworldly encounter, he is seduced by a vision of power. As he and his wife give in to their deepest yearnings, they make a chilling discovery: once opened, the gates of hell are very hard to close.

Quite a bit of blood completes Shakespeare’s tale of inappropriate desire and dire consequences. It may not be appropriate for young children.

As You Like It

*_Opens August 1

_ What would you do if you could break all the rules?

One of Shakespeare’s most popular comedies tells the story of a kingdom in disorder. Its rightful leader is banished, a young man is denied his due by his malevolent elder brother, and a woman is exiled from the place that has always been her home. All of their paths lead away from the “painted pomp” of the court into the heart of the forest of Arden. It’s a place where natural laws outweigh the laws of man and the force of love reigns supreme. As bitter winter passes into the bloom of spring, the residents of Arden discover that transformation is always possible, and sometimes the disguises we wear are the best way to discover who we are.
