“Summer’s lease hath all too short a date.” ― William Shakespeare
The Bard kneweth best — don’t let the summer slip by without catching one of many Shakespearean performances happening at outdoor venues across Connecticut. Most are free with a suggested donation, some have limited reserved seating available for a fee, all are kid-friendly. Contact the venues to inquire about their policies on pets, picnics and alcohol, and to learn of weather-related cancellations.
