We’re back for the 10th year of Penfold in the Park! As Lysandra and Hermia flee Athens’ oppressive laws into a forest full of meddlesome fairies, will love come out on top? This new spin on the classic story places all 21 characters in the hands of 4 virtuosic performers for a free night of fun for the whole family!
Frequently Asked Questions:
Is there reserved seating?
No, there’s no reserved seating. You can arrive as early as 5:30pm to save a space on the grass. On October 15th , ASL interpretation will be provided. For that night only, an area will be reserved so those using interpretation for language access have a good view of the interpreters and the stage.
What should I bring with me?
We recommend bringing a blanket or folding chairs. We have snacks, drinks and bug repellent for sale at the concessions window, though you’re welcome to bring your own (no glass bottles please).
Can I buy dinner there?
Our concession snacks aren’t quite a meal, but there are many restaurants less than half a mile away in Round Rock’s historic downtown district.
What about dogs?
Pets are welcome! We do ask your help by keeping them on a leash and cleaning up after them.
Is this show really free?
Yes! There’s no cost and no reservation required. If you’d like to ensure free theatre under the stars continues in Round Rock, consider making a donation!
Is there an intermission?
Yes, there’s a 10-minute intermission. (Portable restrooms are available on site.)
Is this facility ADA compliant?
Yes, there are accessible parking spaces, sidewalks, ramps and an ADA compliant portable restroom.
Are there any COVID safety rules?
Because the risk of transmission is lower for outdoor events, we are not requiring audience members to wear masks. If you’d like to know what we’re doing to protect our cast and crew, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Any tips for finding the venue?
If you frequently end up turned around, try plugging W Bagdad Ave and S Harris St into your GPS and then follow the big sign to the free parking garage. Or if you prefer surface parking, plug S Brown St and W Florence St into your GPS and you should see a large lot next to a large stone sign for “Centennial Plaza.”
