Sixth Midsummer Night. Rye Town Park

  • Rye Town Park

"The king doth keep his revels here to-night." - Act II, Scene 1.

For our final two performances, Oberon and Titania hold court in Rye Town Park.  

We can scarcely imagine a more beautiful place for a show.  Sitting with friends and family on a broad green lawn, with one of the park's historic pavilions incorporated into the set and the Long Island Sound in the background - it's hard to improve upon the day, unless you bring a picnic.

(LawnChairs not included.)
