We’re back for our 8th summer of Shakespeare in Our Parks!


The young King of Navarre and his three friends swear off all worldly pleasures for three years in order to better themselves through study. Their plan is immediately put to the test when the Princess of France and her three ladies-in-waiting arrive on a diplomatic mission and the priorities of head and heart go to war!
