Sorry, the season is over. There is one more music performance - Trails and Vistas - but no more theater.

Yes, it can, particularly on weekends. The good news is that day visitors are leaving about 5-5:30 p.m. when the evening guests for Shakespeare arrive. Go early, and plan on having a picnic supper outside.

I don't know. I am sure you can find it on line. Not sure they start that early. I think it does not start till June. We are expecting snow this week.
