We missed you in 2020! This year, we’ve crafted a summer season of three exciting events as we get back into the groove at Rockwood Park. Come picnic in the park while enjoying programs that allow for social distancing among performers and audience members alike. We’re thrilled to “triple your Bard” this year…before the return of our mainstage Summer Festival production in 2022.

All performances will last between 60-75 minutes. Visit our website for COVID protocols (which are subject to change).

Here’s our lineup!


“Mark the music!” – The Merchant of Venice

July 16, 17, 18, 24, 25, 31, & August 1


The iconic lead character from As You Like It is explored through three different cultural lenses by three actor/director pairings. Part performance, part artist discussion, this unique program brings three times the joy to Shakespeare’s largest female role

“I’ll teach you how to flow.” – The Tempest

Rhythm, word play, and metaphor will fly as hip-hop and spoken word artists share creations inspired by Shakespeare. Produced and hosted by Anthem.
