There have been works by Shakespeare performed here every summer since 1932, with casts including luminaries such as Vivien Leigh, Dame Judi Dench, and Damien Lewis. Today it also mounts productions of classic plays, musicals, and shows for family audiences. However, A Midsummer Night's Dream is the one to catch, if it's on—never has that enchanted Greek wood been better evoked, especially if enhanced by genuine birdsong and a rising moon. There's a covered restaurant
for pre-theater dining, as well as a barbeque, a buffet, pre-booked picnic boxes, and, of course, a bar. The park can get chilly, so bring a blanket. Performances are rain or shine (umbrellas aren't allowed) with refunds only in case of very heavy downpours.
