Ohio Shakespeare Festival (OSF) at Stan Hywet Gardens (an evening to remember)

A summer evening, below the beautiful gardens, in the old quarry; join us for a magical experience you'll not soon forget. Ohio Shakespeare Festival presents "A Comedy of Errors" Saturday July 20.

S-H gates open at 6:00 so lets meet in the parking lot just past the Carriage House between 6 and 6:15 (look for a silver Mylar Balloon) and we can walk down to the stage area together, get seats together and break bread together. I suggest something simple to share and a jacket. There are plenty of attendants if you get confused at arrival. You will check in at the entry table by the Butterfly House to get your wrist band.

No problem if you get there later but you miss picnicking, strolling the garden, chatting, sitting together, etc. Walk down to the Quarry and look for our balloon (which gets pop'd at 7:20).  The pre-show "Green Show" begins at 7:30 and you should be seated. The play begins at 8.

You need to purchase your ticket now as this will sell out. Cost is $30 and you must go to their web site (Ohio Shakespeare Festival) to do that. When you click order you will be prompted to a PayPal method of payment. You can use debit or credit one time if you don't have a PayPal acct. No worries. OSF site should answer any questions but Email me if not.

Experience Stan Hywet Shakespeare once and I know you'll be back! NOTHING else like it.

    Emergency call from the family that I work with last night. Soooo sad I missed a great show. Seems that the weather cooperated and theater & Stan Hywet was enjoyed by all. Truly one of my favorite places on the map. Thanks Lonnie for hosting a perfect event.

    The weather cooperated and I think we saw a future star. The kid who played Dromio had me laughing so hard I was crying. Incredible performances and a very nice group of people. Can't wait for the next one!
