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.

Regarding Sponsorship of the parade; 

 Here's the wagon/carriage we are considering 
bringing into the parade this year.
We can only do this with the assistance of our sponsors.

So if you care to join us in making a fun time 
for the folks in and at the parade
then please become a sponsor.
We are also looking at horse and riders as well.

Remember the theme is 
"Robin Hood"  
you are welcome to join us in walking the parade route.

  • 2009 was the first year that we approached doing the parade with the assistance of individuals and business sponsorship. The results of which proved that many people are appreciative of what we are working to achieve.

  • So it is that- the ongoing method of funding the activities of the parade will be to offer participation to our sponsors by promoting their contribution in the flyer that is handed out during the parade and for the upcoming year in all our subsequent publications, including the hard copy of "The Shakespearean Journal" which is handed out at performances and to interested parties during the year.  

  • Contributors will also be promoted by posting a word of thanks here in the on-line version of "The Shakespearean Journal" with links to their own web pages.  

  • The online edition of the Journal, which you are looking at now, will also include an archive section where past activities will remain available for review. Thus the posting for any given year and it's links will also remain until such time as it is necessary to purge the information.

  • Sponsorship of the parade takes the form of purchasing a line of credit on the flyer which is handed out at the parade by the costumed performers and others who have joined us in walking in the parade.

  • The flyers are also handed out year round in our other promotional efforts

  • Currently there are 18 spaces available on the flyer. 

  • in 2009 the cost per line was $100 and this has proven to be insufficient to cover the cost of the parade.  So in 2010 the cost per line will be $150.

  • If more than one line is purchased the first line is highlighted in bold.

  • The first year we handed out 5,000 flyers, but there were no sponsors. In 2009 we handed out somewhere between 3,500 and 4,00 flyers and the reduction was mainly due to the fact that the parade moved along faster and the participants did more performing along the route, in part because of the advanced theatricality of the presentation.

  • Look for a reproduction of the last year's and this years flyers to appear here in the near future.

  • If you care to purchase a line of credit in the upcoming flyer you can make your check, or money order,  out to Arthur Greisiger (Artistic Director of the Shakespeareans of Tamanend Park) 

  • Mail your check to "The Shakespeareans of Tamanend Park c/o Tamanend Park 1255 Second Street Pike, Southampton, PA 18966

  • You can also pay for your ad using PayPal  or contribute any amount to help the programing and the stage facilities in Tamanend Park be maintained and grow.
