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.

A Special Thanks

I am impressed by the number of hits this page has been getting. Sadly, when we needed it most we had a hard time getting involvement in our programs at Tamanend Park.  After four years of effort I decided to close down the stage at the park. But have no fear, I do plan on rebuilding the stage and making a portable stage, which we can move to whichever park we care to.  For now I am busy with a new musical titled The Gnomes of New Hope: Zach & Zebby's Grand Adventure.  There has been some Shakespearean activity with BACT in Bryn Athyn and I am thinking that we might make another go at it in the future, possibly down there or out of my studio and into an assortment of parks in the region. For now, however, our buddy the bard will be waiting in the wings.

Thanks for your interest in this page. I do hope I can get back to it at another time. In the mean while, keep your interest up and if anyone wants to produce something, do let me know. Because after all the producer is the most important role to get the ball rolling. AG
