Pack a picnic, pack up the family, and enjoy Shakespeare under the stars!
Enjoy Shakespeare under the stars at The Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey’s Outdoor Stage production of The Complete Works Of William Shakespeare (abridged)(revised).
Back by popular demand, three wild and crazy actors will take you on an irreverent, madcap romp through Shakespeare’s entire canon. Featuring some new surprises since our last production in 2008, this is a terrific show to introduce Shakespeare to young people, and a hilarious spoof that appeals to audiences of all ages — from Bardophiles to Bardophobes! As always, picnicking under the stars with family and friends makes for a delightful evening where art, nature, and the ancient tradition of outdoor theatre all come together!
This year, the Theatre is excited to announce young people 18 and under go for free thanks to generous support from the National Endowment for the Arts. Take a virtual tour! The Google Tour program is made possible in part by support from Kessler Foundation, in partnership with the New Jersey Theatre Alliance.
Pay-What-You-Can Performance: The first preview performance on Wednesday, June 22, at 8:00 p.m., offers an opportunity for reduced-price tickets, as an incentive to first-time theatergoers and/or those who would otherwise not be able to afford a night at the theatre -- pay what you are able for that evening’s 8:00 p.m. preview performance. Offer is subject to availability. Call the Box Office at 973-408-5600 for details.
The Outdoor Stage is also generously supported by Bank of America. A partner of The Outdoor Stage since 2004, their committed and generous support has helped make The Shakespeare Theatre’s Outdoor Stage a hallmark of the summer season in the region. Bank of America customers can obtain tickets for the Outdoor Stage at the great price of $25 by using code “BOFA” for online sales and/or with the presentation of their bank cards at the box office. For tickets or more information, call 973-408-5600 or visit www.ShakespeareNJ.org.
Nestled into the hillside on the campus of the College of Saint Elizabeth, this stone and grass amphitheatre has been a popular performance space since its creation in 1932. Surrounded by a large lawn, the amphitheatre is ideal for picnicking before the show. Audience members may bring their own food and beverages, or purchase snacks and soft drinks on-site. Patrons are encouraged to bring either a low-backed beach chair or picnic blanket to sit on. Higher-backed beach chairs are allowed in the top rows of the theatre. Seating at The Outdoor Stage is general admission.
