Is there any food available?
Elm City Kettle Corn will be available most evenings selling popcorn and water. 

Is the performance kid friendly?
YES!  We get lots of feedback that even with short attention spans, kids are often “rapt with wonder” for the entire performance.  That said, Shakespeare does explore adult themes, but our staging will be appropriate for all ages with lots of music and theatricality to keep the whole family engaged.
