The Show

Get to your seats, silence your devices...it's 7pm, and the show is beginning!

Be prepared to laugh and cry, to see beautiful costumes, and for actors to delight you as the sun sets on Pinkney Park. A few important notes: pictures and videos of the production are prohibited, and all devices must be silenced or turned off before the show begins. Otherwise, sit back and enjoy the show!

After The Show 

Once the performance ends, the park can become chaotic in the dark. Be careful while collecting all of your things, crossing the road, and making your way home. If you have children, be sure to watch them closely.

If you think you've lost something in the park, let us know at contactus@shakespeareonthesound.org or (203) 957-1006 and we'll see if we can locate it. Otherwise, thank you for coming!

For Kids

Kids are welcome to come and see the full production (children under 13 can watch for free on any night). 

We also provide fun educational opportunities for your kids every night before the show begins!

The Kids' Show, Let's Play Shakespeare, performed by the Shakespeare on the Sound Apprentice Company, is 30-minutes of hilarity and socially distanced audience interaction that takes place every evening before the show at 5pm.

More Activities Around Pinkney Park 

Pinkney Park is home to a fantastic harbor view, a small and beautiful garden, and a picturesque gazebo behind the Rowayton Historical Society's headquarters at the Seeley-Dibble-Pinkney house. Be sure to check out Seaside Delights, a small shop run by the Rowayton Historical Society next to the Pinkney house, that sells unique, nautical-themed souvenirs and gifts.

Weather

Shakespeare on the Sound makes every effort to have performances go ahead if possible, but performances will be cancelled if it seems that weather will make a performance dangerous for the actors and audience. If the weather is iffy, don't forget to check for updates on this website as well as on our Twitter and Facebook pages (be aware that there is no set time at which a decision is made). If the show is cancelled and you've ordered tickets, you can absolutely refund or pick a different performance date. Please see our Cancellation Policy for more information.
