Pack a picnic and get ready for some Bard! The two day Seattle outdoor Theater Festival, held annually at Volunteer Park is the king of area Outdoor Shakespeare/Shakespeare in the Park events around Puget Sound.

All productions were good; presenters ranged from smaller theater groups to the very professional productions by Seattle Shakespeare.

Many of the productions at the Outdoor Theater Festival also take place at various other outdoor Shakespeare events around Puget Sound as well.

Seattle Shakespeare Groundling ButtonThe Outdoor Theater Festival is free but, of course, donations are accepted. If you make a donation, you might be an official groundling! I’ve got my button…somewhere around here.

Being at the Outdoor Theater Festival really doesn’t approximate being at The Globe in the days of Shakespeare. However, I was a groundling at the festival in a very real way: sitting on the ground. Be sure to bring your own low festival chairs or festival blankets to sit on.
