regardless of whether or not you can make a contribution.
Will donations in all amounts are greatly appreciated as we continue
our tradition of producing Good Will Shakespeare productions.
Long is the Show?
begin at 7:00pm, including the Sunday performances. The show runs
approximately 2 hours, including intermission.
the Show “Family Friendly?”
This summer our production, The
Taming of the Shrew, is a bawdy, battle-of-the-sexes comedy based in
Italian Commedia dell'Arte. The informal park setting is perfect for families to have a
taste of the Bard’s wonderful characters, exciting action, and brilliant language. This production is not as “G –Rated” as many of our past performances have been, but should be appropriate for most families. Previous audiences have included everyone from babies to people in their 80s,
people of wide-ranging cultural and ethnic backgrounds, people with physical
disabilities, and even some pets.
You Mean Pets
for performances at The Swan at Wyuka Stables and the Lincoln
Community Foundation Garden, furry family members are welcome to
attend a performance with you! We request that dogs be kept on a
leash. Pet owners must clean up after their dogs.

Community Foundation are handicapped accessible. The park locations
