Don't miss a chance to see a free Shakespeare play. Outdoors with beer and snacks. A perfect venue. Bring your own cooler and picnic to save money. Don't forget chairs.

Saw "Much Ado about Nothing". A most wonderful and delightful production. Great cast, costumes and weather was perfect for Shakespeare under the stars.
