Henry IV, Part 1


The original “Game of Thrones”—after deposing Richard II, the new monarch Henry IV finds England in chaos. His son Prince Hal spends his time in the taverns of London with brigands and drunkards, led by the pot-bellied prankster Falstaff. Their revels are interrupted by rebellions from the north and west, led by Hal’s rival, the gallant Hotspur. The Battle of Shrewsbury looms ahead, and with it, the fate of the House of Lancaster.

To get best seats and best parking spot, it is important to Arrive Promptly Before 7:30.   If arrive before 7:30, join the hockey stick (me) waiting in the amphitheater ticket line, and ask for four Free tickets.   Our consecutive tickets in amphitheater is better for viewing plays.  

Until 8PM, look for a hockey stick either near the ticket line or on the south side (toward the medical center) waiting line for the amphitheater seating.   At 8:20PM, all unoccupied seats will become available.   Chances are good for amphitheater seats at Shakespeare plays.   If you come after the opportunity for our consecutive tickets (after roughly 7:40), see if you can get tickets anyhow, and if not, join us, as we will likely have extra tickets for you.   Call 281 eight 04 six 246 then to find us.    

Somethings you may want to bring:   blanket or tarp to sit on, binoculars, snacks.

    Hi Cassie,

    Those of us who can arrive before 7:30, will try to get 4 consecutive tickets apiece. From 7:30 till 8:15, it's unclear how many tickets will be available, but again, try to get 4 consecutive tickets. We will share tickets attained. At 8:15, open seating occurs, in the event we didn't get enough tickets.

    If none of us got tickets, we will go for the sit-on-grass side.

    Odds are good we will get amphitheater seating.

    So, if we get there before 8 which is the time the show starts, we will get a seat? If we get there after 8, there's no guarantee will we get a seat. Is that correct?

    We will try to get amphitheater seating, because the play's experience will be superior. Please see above details.

    Usually, the hill is divided into chairs and blankets. Are we doing one or the other? Are we sitting together?

    Afterwards, let's gather and discuss the play; while missing all the traffic congestion exiting the park.

    ? I've never had much trouble with Miller Outdoor Theater. I suspect they spray the grounds. Occasional bites, yes.

    I would also advise bringing bug spray. The mosquitoes will slaughter you
