We really enjoyed Alice in Wonderland, an afternoon performance on a beautiful sunny day in Point Pleasant Park. We brought a picnic, rented some chairs($2 each) or you can bring your own chairs, and sat under a huge shelter. You can buy water, giant freezies, water and chips. If you find the walk in long, or someone needs a ride in you can call a day ahead of time and they will drive you in via a golf cart. The actors truly captivated young and old alike with singing, dancing and comedy. There is no set charge, a donation box is set up as you enter. A suggestion of $15 donation is written somewhere but you can give what you can. It was a wonderful way to spend a summer day in Halifax and I am going to go to one of the night performances before the summer is over(they do several plays, the matinees different from the evening). Well done Shakespeare by the Sea!

These guys have been putting on plays in the park for as long as I can remember and are a staple of the Halifax summer. Bring a picnic, pay by donation, rent a blanket and have a few laughs outside in a gorgeous park - it's pretty great.
