Tina Packer Playhouse

Inspired by Shakespeare's theaters-where everybody was close to the action; our air-conditioned, scaffold-and-canvas theatre, places audiences on all sides of the stage (in the round) and on two levels. With box seats and comfortable armless, cushion-backed benches the Playhouse seats over 400. Amenities include an indoor bar and lobby, concessions, and restrooms. The theatre is wheelchair accessible.

Our tented outdoor theatre is a reconstruction of the first level of Shakespeare’s first London theatre, the Rose Playhouse. Situated on our beautiful Rose Meadow, the Theatre features bleacher seating and removable “groundling” seating for up to 250, with restrooms nearby in Josie’s Place Cafe.


Theatrical Studios

Three state-of-the-art theatrical studios, located in the Bernstein, can double as performance spaces. Each room is equipped with lighting grids (at 15′ 9½”) with 400 amp stage lighting. Sprung floors are on neoprene pads, which make the airy rooms particularly suitable for dance, yoga and other physical movement.
