Cromulent Shakespeare Company performs free theatre in parks throughout the Twin Cities annually during the month of June. See the Family Fun Calendar for dates and times each June. The public is invited to bring blankets or lawn chairs and a picnic to enjoy a little Shakespeare. They work to choose the best park accommodations for their audiences. All performances are weather-dependent, however, shows will not be cancelled unless weather conditions are dangerous.
If you are interested in exploring Shakespeare a little further with your kids, the Folger Shakespeare Library has material you can use.
