Prelude

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.

August Press Release

The Latest Press Release

The Shakespeareans of Tamanend Park...  is a burgeoning  group of individuals interested in studying and performing the works of William Shakespeare in the newly created Meadow Amphitheatre, located in Southampton's Tamanend Park at 1255 Second Street Pike in Southampton, Pennsylvania.

The stage and associated programs have been developing since it's inception in 2008.

This year has brought about two new programs, which are both now taking place.

"Cinema Under the Stars" presents a selection of films, predominately Shakespearean in nature, but interspersed with classic and musical theatre oriented films. The films are shown on alternating Saturday nights at dusk. A schedule may be seen at www.cinemaunderthestars.blogspot.com. 

Also new this year is "Shakespeare for Kids" taking place from August 17th thru the 19 with a performance by the kids on Thursday evening at the stage.   Further information on this and other programs may be found at www.shakespeareanjournal.blogspot.com. 

Area Shakespeareans are invited to present material during the fall time-slot which is dubbed "Autumn Leaves: Performance Festival".  It is hoped that this time-slot at The Meadow Amphitheatre will grow to become a week-long festival of theatre arts.  The performances  take place on the last weekend in September and the first weekend in October.  The program remains "Scenes & Music" and any person or organization wishing to present Shakespearean material is welcomed.

This years performance time-slot is kicked off by a showing of the full text version of Kenneth Branagh's "Hamlet" at the Southampton Library on Saturday, September 25th at 1:00 pm.

The stage performances will begin on Sunday the 26th. The material to be presented is still developing. 

The Shakespeareans of Tamanend Park meets on Saturdays & Sundays from 2-4 pm at the stage in Tamanend Park.
