  • Wonderful theater, nice picnic grounds, great performance. It's a fantastic night out for the family or a date. The Elizabethan style outdoor theater is a perfect setting for a night of picnicking and a Shakespeare play. The actors are a mix of equity, near-equity, and college age performers who give their all to make for good theater.
