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.

PRESS RELEASE: October Performances

The October Performance Schedule
at Tamanend Park's
Meadow Amphitheatre
Since the first weekend October has been identified as a Performance Weekend,  the stage will be set for a rather impromptu performances for both days this weekend in Tamanend Park.
Actors and musicians have been encouraged for the past year to prepare material for this time-slot and so the stage will be prepared in expectation that some people will like to perform.
Although no specific program has been prepared this year, due in large part to the work of building "Cinema Under the Stars"... remaining consistent in creating this Fall time-slot is most important.  With the goal of creating "Autumn Leaves : Performance Festival"  we offer the stage freely to those who would like to perform.
The invitation is extended to local performance groups who may like to present a sampling of the work they are doing and to promote their shows, as well as individual actors,  musicians & singers who are able and willing to walk-the-boards.
"Spontaneous Shakespeare" & "Scenes & Music" are the standard programs for The Shakespeareans of Tamanend Park and will be the guideposts for presenting. However, other carefully planned presentations are welcomed.
We strive to maintain some degree of order & professionalism, so improvisational, unscripted performances are encouraged only in an environmental setting surrounding the stage.  We want to reserve the stage for presentations that are clearly theatrical and not chaotic.
The objective has been to encourage area actors, musicians, singers and others, to take advantage of the stage in Tamanend Park...  and for people who want this activity to remain an option to them and the community,  to assist in making this and other events at the stage, a reality, by either performing, helping to manage the activities, or observing as an audience member.
Contributions are accepted for all activities at The Meadow Amphitheatre.  which are presented free to the public.
