Welcome to the site for The Shakespeareans of Tamanend Park.

Please refer to the posting "Introduction" below
and examine the end of the page for maps
and details about special events,
such as the parade
or other events
that may occur remotely
from the stage
at the Park.

Cinema Under the Stars is left at the top of the page because the films, which are intended to be shown on alternating weekends, require frequent updating.

The show-times are approximate
because of the changing sunset time and go up when it is dark enough.

You are advised to arrive early to choose a good spot in the field. We have concession items available and in the future may have blankets available for rental.

Be sure to bring insect repellent, although we do use citronella to cut back on mosquitoes, you will need to protect yourself.

Refer to the IMS Virtual Studio for a countdown to the current film showing.

In the Event of Rain;

Live Performances at the stage are canceled if the sky is not clear and the ground dry by 1:00 p.m. with no forecast of rain for the remainder of the day.

For Cinema Under the Stars the ground must be dry by 5:00 p.m. and no forecast for rain that evening.

Unless otherwise specified there is no rain date.

Welcome to the online site for 
The Shakespearean Journal

It is a publication designed to support the activities of 
The Shakespeareans of Tamanend Park
and is being designed as a forum
for people to interact on various subjects
of Shakespearean Lore and production activity.

You are invited to post your comments
regarding projects you are working on,
thoughts you may have
or articles you have written
about the works of the Bard,
or ideas you have
for programs we could produce

The Meadow Amphitheater
Southampton's Tamanend Park

Please feel free to post details about the programs 
which we are producing:
  • a program that you are, or have been involved in
  •  a program you are producing or directing
  • what you would like to see produced.

This site will serve as a means for people
to communicate with one another
as we work together
to build a troupe of players
and gather the resources to succeed.

The Shakespearean Journal is published as a hard-copy booklet, updated twice a year during our performance time-slots and designed to reach out to the community as a Sponsorship program. It is intended to be a fund raising devise and to provide that basic costs of maintaining The Shakespeareans of Tamanend Park and The Meadow Amphitheatre.

Each individual program produced at the stage will require it's own funding plan and it may be that the season's schedule will also be supported by the activities of The Journal, once the basic maintenance expenditures are secured.

A goal of The Shakespeareans of Tamanend Park is to establish a balanced operating plan as it pertains to the status as a non-profit organization and it's relationship to the immediate community and the larger arts-funding organizations who have approached us with the offer of support.

I will be creating posts here on the projects we are working on, however I will leave these pages open to the other participants and post the specific details of scheduling and such to the IMS Virtual Studio posts.  I will make reference here and create links as necessary, but this site is intended mostly as a site for persons other than myself to dialogue, communicate and post their efforts for all to see.

You must understand and agree that anything you post here may be reproduced in the hard-copy of The Journal, without compensation to you for doing so.  If you have material that you would like to submit which requires compensation- communicate this to:

Arthur Greisiger via email at

NOTE: I seemed to have had trouble posting comments here,
something which needs to be corrected,
if you likewise have a problem,
send your post to me in an email
and I will insert it verbatim.
