PLAN YOUR VISIT
Our summer productions are performed from a temporary, custom-built stage at the northern end of Wilcox Park. The Park’s grassy basin can accommodate over 10,000 attendees. Many people set down their blankets a few hours ahead of time, order dinner from a Downtown restaurant, and enjoy a picnic meal with family and friends before the show begins.
HOW TO "THEATRE"
The Colonial Theater’s Shakespeare in the Park is Rhode Island’s longest running Shakespeare festival. With our years of experience, we suggest you bring:
- Bug Spray - available for purchase at our concession stands
- Chairs - allowed in the first two sections
