Though they're all about dodging social obligations or commitment of any kind, two wily young bachelors attempt to come across as very earnest -- while masquerading as guys named Ernest -- as they set out to win their well-dowried ladies' hearts. Of course, their plan goes hilariously awry. Oscar Wilde's enduring 1895 satire is a wittily sly romp through Victorian society, filled with one-liners and double entendres that still pack a mighty comic punch today. Revived numerous times on Broadway -- most recently in 2011 -- Earnest was also adapted into a 2002 film starring Oscar winners Reese Witherspoon and Colin Firth. Bring a picnic dinner and enjoy the show from the pastoral Austin Gardens, beneath the summer evening sky. Learn More

I gladly gave it three stars. We really liked the production. We had great weather and enjoyed a picnic on the grounds beforehand. A loaf of bread, a jug of sparkling grape juice, and "thou". The set was enhanced by the trees and fireflies. The costumes, music, lighting, and script were excellent. My professional sound man husband noticed that the microphones could have been improved by moving them just slightly, but it was not noticeable. There was a wardrobe malfunction that could have been avoided, but it didn't seem to disturb the children attending. All in all, it was a great experience. My husband is still talking about it.

Robin Hood: A Fanciful Historie of That Most Notable & Famous Outlaw Robyn Hood is a good old-fashioned romp through the life and times of Robin Hood, written in the Elizabethan style of the Bard. Young and old alike will thrill to this play full of action, romance, heroes, villains, and fun that answers the question: What if Shakespeare had written a play about the legendary bandit Robin Hood?
