There are lots of casual dining options on Lake St (one block S) in case you want to eat indoors before the show.

It's a good idea to get early and score seats up front. We thought we did, but then a couple decided to sit down right in front of us in packable chairs!

parking is expensive if you use the lot across the street & come early to picnic.

Failed to check the student price of the show on Oak Park Festival Theatre's website. Wound up paying MORE with Goldstar for a ticket and service fee than I would have if I'd bought the ticket at the gate. And since this is theater under the stars, there's no chance it would sell out.

Sometimes there is street parking, but the lot across the street is easy ($4) and you don't have to wait in the pay line if you are paying by credit card - go directly to gate and use CC there.

This is a perfect picnic spot. Come early, get a good place up front and enjoy your goodies and wine.

You can sit on the lawn - bring a blanket - or bring your own chair, or rent a stackable plastic chair for $2.

There's a parking garage across the street. It will cost around $4 for the length of the show.

bring some fun snacks and drinks. i saw the spreads that other people brought and it made my paltry Subway sandwich look pitiful. Next ime, I'll do it up right! but you can purchase light snacks and drinks there.
