If you want to reserve a picnic table #'s 50-59 are the best as they sit along the top edge of seats of the amphitheater. We brought our four year old son and though the people around us were great it was not enough to hold his attention. If you bring kids that might be antsy I suggest waiting until the show starts then sit in the empty seats near the top so you can let them stretch their legs and have easy access to the bathrooms BEFORE the 10 minute intermission.

While this is a wonderful venue, the production was deeply sub par. The direction was lacking any understanding of farce, the actors had no sense of timing, and though the lead may be personable, he was horribly miscast.
