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.

Tamanend Park Day


September 11th is Tamanend Park Day when a number of events are planned throughout the park. The hours are between 10 am and 3 pm.  Food services are also provided.  The event has been rained out for the last two years, but this year all looks good for a fun event.

The Shakespeareans of Tamanend Park welcome The Village Renaissance Players to the stage in The Meadow Amphitheatre.  All is set for them to present their version of "The Princess Bride" at 12:00 noon, with area actors being invited to show up and make a try at some "Spontaneous Shakespeare" after the show. (refer to the posting on "Spontaneous Shakespeare)

The Village Renaissance Players make their home at The Village Renaissance Faire in Wrightstown which takes place on the weekend of September 18th & 19th at the Grange Fairgrounds in Wrightstown PA.

The Shakespeareans of Tamanend Park have performed at the faire and most heartily recommend attendance as a joyful experience. There are many exciting events, renaissance folk of all sorts in glorous costumes, and food galore.  The main staging area provides a most enthralling sequence of events performed by experienced actors in luscious costumes which each year provide a new theme before the enjoyment of the patrons.  It is an event not to be missed.

Come to Tamanend Park Day and experience a preview of The Village Renaissance Players show which they will also be performing at the Renaissance Fair this year.  It is likely that you will also be able to win free admission to the fair as we hoping to offer a raffle, but most certainly you will be able to pick up your two-fers for the faire date.
