Let's head up to Garrison to partake in the delight that is our regional gem -- the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival -- and go see Two Gentlemen of Verona under their big tent overlooking the Hudson River. We'll go on Sunday August 10th -- please plan to arrive around 5pm so we can have a picnic dinner before the show -- show starts at 7pm..and prob runs at least 2 hrs.
Please send funds via paypal so I can buy a block of tickets together - $46 for adults, $40 for seniors.. send asap as there are side seats 2nd or 4th row that we can get..!
We will arrange carpooling as parking is tough, and getting out of the parking lot can take a long time - less cars the better.. Please indicate if you are willing to drive or need a ride... will set up two meeting spots (southern and northern westchester - will leave southern westchester by 4pm..)
You can order a picnic dinner from the theatre company's catering organization or you can bring your own..we'll coordinate what people want to do closer to the date.. but you MUST order your picnics from HVSF at least THREE DAYS BEFORE THE SHOW..
Haven't heard of HVSF? Well then you are in for a treat.. CHECK OUT THEIR WEBSITE FOR MORE INFO: http://hvshakespeare.org/content/home
For 27 years, the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival has produced critically-acclaimed shows that challenge, inspire and demystify the great works of William Shakespeare.
The region’s only professional resident Shakespeare company, HVSF makes its home under a tent theater on the grounds of the 19th century Boscobel estate in Garrison, New York, overlooking the Hudson River.
Using the dramatic views of the Hudson Highlands and the sweeping vistas from the elegant lawns of Boscobel as near-perfect stage scenery, the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival presents unparalleled productions with the perfect marriage of theater and nature. We invite audience members to arrive two hours early to enjoy a picnic meal on the grounds of the estate.
“Populism without pandering: That's the Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival's style and I've never seen it go wrong.”

The Two Gentlemen of Verona
by William Shakespeare
Directed by Eric Tucker
Shakespeare's take on friendship, young love, constancy and fickleness, this romantic comedy takes us from the courtly world of Verona and Milan to the wildness of the forest where, it seems, anything can happen.
