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.

Bucks County composer reawakens the music of Shakespeare's classic comedy.

  • Shakespearean scholars agree that A Midsummer Night's Dream was originally a musical, where fairies danced their rounds and sang their Queen to sleep, and Oberon, King of the Fairies, intoned blessings on Theseus' palace. But, like so many works, including the first Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, while the words have been immortalized, the music is lost forever.
  • Now, local composer, Michael Dutka breathes musical life back into Shakespeare's glorious fantasy. And on July 5th, 2010, at 3PM, The Shakespeareans of Tamanend Park will present the first scene of Midsummer in the park's open-air theater, The Meadow Amphitheatre.
  • A treat for Shakespeare-lovers, music-lovers, and children of all ages. Admission free.
