Thank you to all who attended the Summer Festival 2021 in Rockwood Park. We’ll share details for our 2022 production of The Tempest towards the end of 2021.
We missed you in 2020! This year, we’ve crafted a summer season of three exciting events as we get back into the groove at Rockwood Park. Come picnic in the park while enjoying programs that allow for social distancing among performers and audience members alike. We’re thrilled to “triple your Bard” this year…before the return of our mainstage Summer Festival production in 2022.
All performances will last between 60-75 minutes. CLICK HERE FOR CURRENT COVID PROTOCOLS (which are subject to change).
