I definitely enjoyed the performance last night. Since this was my first experience with Shakespeare, I don't know enough to know how good it was. Having the plot summary in the program was vital. I wouldn't have understood as much without it. It was a beautiful night to watch a show outdoors. The sound quality was very good with just an occasional dead spot on front of the stage. I would definitely see another performance by this group in this venue.

Terrible sound system made any subtleties in the acting lost to the text. Not my favorite play anyway, but with excellent actors the story could have soared. Pretty disappointed in Olney Theater which has been unbelievable strong this year under...continued
This production is recommended for those age 8 and older.
What to bring:
•A Blanket and a Picnic Basket: Our lawn area is perfect to enjoy your favorite snacks while you view the show.
•A Lawn Chair: You are welcome to view the show seated in the lawn chair you bring with you.
•Bug Spray & Sunscreen: Since this is an outdoor production, it might be a good idea to protect yourself from the elements.
•Money For Snacks and Drinks: You may want to take advantage of our concessions. We will have ice cream, light snacks, and beverages including beer and wine.
