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.

The Old Dominion Society

On September 18th we did a reenactment of  

"The Consecration of George Washington" 

"... my fervent supplications to that Almighty Being..."

at the Old Monastery
 Wissahickon Valley Park.

I had the honor of performing as The Priest of Wissahickon in this reenactment of the moment when George Washington was given the mission of becoming the Deliver of the New World.  It was a wonderful presentation that delighted all of the many people who were there.

Last year I had the pleasure of participating in "A Concert of Sacred Music" at Washington Chapel in Valley Forge Park, performing as The Marque De Lafayette & John Hancock in that presentation.  It was overwhelmingly moving and superb.  To my great delight I have been asked to participate again this year and there is no chance that I will not do it, unless I am dead!

Also, for your information, I am working with The Old Dominion society to bring this "Concert of Sacred Music" to Southampton's Old School Meetinghouse, which is situated directly across from the entrance to Tamanend Park.  Next July 4th we will be inviting local talent to participate in what we are planning to be a costumed event.   All participants, both performers and audience will be expected to be in colonial garb for this event.  So if you want to have a "ball" then start getting your colonial outfit together for next years event.  This is really an opportunity that you won't want to miss.  We may do the concert twice, one for costumed participants and one for people who are not comfortable being in costume, that is yet to be seen.  The cost of tickets has not been determined, as we have not done the budget yet.  Keep a watch here for more information and if you'd like to help with planning, producing, or performing in this event, please let me know.
