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.

Just touching base

Well, The Meadow Amphitheatre was removed from Tamenend Park a number of years ago. That resulted in Shakespearean activity coming to a close. I feel that is a temporary condition. I have been intent on rebuilding the stage as a portable unit. The reason behind that is that we will then be able to move a production to whatever location we see fit. Now to do this requires a significant effort and cost. Part of achieving the portability of the stage also includes either a trailer or the completion of my portable workshop. You can go to where you may find a post on that subject.

I may continue to post here, because I do hope we can rebuilt an effort to establish a troupe. If you are interested my email is
