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.

Spontaneous Shakespeare


For those of you who love to read and act Shakespeare, "Spontaneous Shakespeare" is an opportunity to get some more time in on expressing yourself. 

For those of you who have always been a closet Shakespearean, you know, wishing you could get into Shakespeare, but not quite knowing how or when, then here's your chance.

"Spontaneous Shakespeare" as a concept is not quite as spontaneous as the name implies.  We have numerous scripts available, since we are reading from the script, but the scenes that we read has to be planned out and someone needs to take charge of those scenes.  That is why we invite anyone who has a love for a particular play or sequence of scenes from a play, to take charge of directing the folks who show up and want to read.

We also ask that you bring your own scripts with you, if you have any.  Of course we have scripts, but we don't have enough copies of all the scripts and may not have enough copies of the one in which you may like to read.

Our objective is to create an environment where folks can share in the love of expressing their inner Shakespeare... or Hamlet... or Benedict... or Puck... or Moth... and on and on.

So come around any Saturday, or Sunday from 2-4pm and most particularly during our performance time-slots when we may likely have an audience.

And remember that actors are invited to walk-the-boards with us during those time-slots and are encouraged to prepare whatever Shakespearean material they see fit. We are taking a casual approach to these outdoor performances in the program "Spontaneous Shakespeare".
