To Be ~ Or Not To Be Present At This Show ~ That Is The Question. Don’t Miss It. JOIN US!

This year as a celebration of all Shakespeare's comedies, we are performing TWO comedies based on Shakespeare's plays! These shows are great for all those who love Shakespeare, and even better for those who struggle with the language. In Act one, we will be performing part of the acclaimed play, "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (abridged)," A play in which just four actors explain all of Shakespeare's plays in just 45 minutes! In Act Two, we perform the hilarious parody of HAMLET, "Something's Rotten in the State of Denmark," written by local playwright, Joseph Wallace.

Because inflation has hit us all hard this summer, we still want folks to experience Shakespeare Under the Stars, so we have lowered the price of tickets to just $10/person! These performances are weather permitting. Bring lawn chairs, or a blanket, have a picnic -- don't forget the bug spray! Enter at 1351 Cranston St. Parking in back of Mansion. No pets.
