Shakespeare at Stoneleigh – SOLD OUT
Stoneleigh: A Natural Garden |
July 24, 2021 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
Event is sold out. Please connect with us at another outdoors adventure.
Grab your blanket or lawn chair and settle in for this unique, open-air theater experience. In Shakespeare’s most popular comedy, two couples deal with love and all its complications: confusion, jealousy, and passion. Further hindering the couples on their way to happily-ever-after are a lively band of characters and challenging events, including a band of actors, mischievous fairies, and a botched love potion. A Midsummer Night’s Dream is a delight for the whole family.
Directed by Josh Hitchens.

For nearly 80 years, Stoneleigh was the home of the Haas family, which donated the property to Natural Lands in 2016 so that it would remain preserved forever.
The property includes stately trees, winding pathways, and lush gardens that were designed by a number of notable landscape architects over the past century—including the Olmsted Brothers, sons of the famed Frederick Law Olmsted.
