 Look for your hosts for the evening: Dave Cribbins, Rick Lowe, Ray , Dave Merrill and Gabriele

free/ donation highly suggested

meet to picnic at 5:45 - 6:00pm or so...

Showtime: 8:00 – Pericles (approximately 2 hours, no intermission)

Open Seating Bring your own lawn chairs or blankets to set up on the grass.

Location: Edgerton Park is located on Whitney Avenue in New Haven at the Hamden border. There are several entrances - Edgehill Road, opposite Edgehill Terrace, and on Cliff Street and our performances are located on the Great Lawn in the center of the park.

Restrooms: Portable restrooms are available on the Cliff Street side of the park

 

Parking:Car Free street parking is available on the blocks surrounding the park

 

Food: Concessions Coffee, water, candy, and light snacks available at our Info Tent or bring your own picnic.

 

Other Considerations: ADA If needed, drop-off is available directly into the park on paved roads through the entrance on Edgehill Road, but traveling over grass is difficult to avoid in the audience.

Weather In the event of inclement weather, performances are cancelled - updates are posted online.

Pets Well-behaved, leashed pets are welcome.

During the Performance Please remain seated, silence or turn off cell phones, no photography, video, or audio recording is allowed.

Carpooling is a great idea...just move all the details to a personal email or greeting once you have established an initial contact with the party you want to ride with.  That way we avoid the whole group getting all the details from the comment section  that do not pertain to others.

    This was definitely the best Shakespeare play I've seen in Edgarton Park. The park was packed. I really enjoyed the great group and members I met.

    I was there with a couple of people, but I didn't join the group as I knew I would get there late. Play was wonderful. I loved the costumes, music, dance and a couple of the actors were fantastic. PLus the outdoor setting is always stunning. All the world's a stage but what could be better than a tree-lined theatre!

    What a great evening! We ended up having an array of food brought by all our attendees and thanks to Michael for bringing a picnic table for the pre show buffet.
    The show was fantastic, with a happy ending despite the tragedy within the plot! The set with the surrounding trees was visually beautiful. A most enjoyable evening!

    If you missed the play tonight, you should definitely try to see it this weekend. I've seen a dozen or so Shakespeare plays in the past 4 years and this was by far the best I've seen so far. I may try to see it again Saturday.

    There certainly is no replacement for Cathy, but the show must go on. Cathy - you will be sorely missed that evening. I am happy to fill in. I am certainly not a replacement for Cathy at all (big shoes to fill), however, you'll see me there. I unfortunately will not get there until 6:45/7pm since I am commuting back up from Norwalk, but, you'll see me there. :) Cathy, have a wonderful vacation. Awe...you will be missed. - Swadhi :)

    I regret to say I will have to back out of this Meetup venue, so sorry. I will be leaving for vacation that evening and I will not be able to attend. Dave Cribbins and Rick Lowe have generously offered to hold the fort, (set up camp). Rick will put up our usual Black and White balloons and Dave will have his American flags. I am asking all our regulars to introduce around our newbies for that night. Look for our other assistants Ray, Dave Merrill and Gabriele as well. Hoping someone will take pictures? Have fun, make merry, I will be with you in spirit!!!
