About Willow Street Park Productions

What time are the performances?
7pm Thursdays – Sundays

How much are tickets?
Productions at Willow Street Park are FREE to the public, thanks to our generous sponsors.

The actors will pass the hat at the end of each performance for those who can and wish to make a donation. The suggested donation is $10 per adult. Checks can be made out to Silicon Valley Shakespeare.

What is the seating like?
Willow Street Park features a grassy bowl on which to place a blanket or low-backed chair. The lower-center area is blankets-only; low-backed chairs can be used farther up the hill. Chairs over 25 inches high are allowed in the rear and on the sides.

We suggest that you bring your own chairs and blankets, through blankets are available for rent in the concession stand. Those of you in our Donors Circle enjoy free blanket and cushion rentals.

Is the seating reserved?
Seating is not reserved and is available on a first come, first served basis. Feel free to arrive early and claim your seats with a blanket and enjoy a picnic in the park. A special section in the middle is reserved for certain levels of our Donors Circle.

What is the parking situation?

Willow Street Park has a small parking lot, and street parking surrounding the park. Additional parking is available in the neighborhood. Please be considerate of our neighbors when parking.

Public Transportation:
We encourage you to use public transportation. Willow Street Park is near VTA Local Bus Routes 25 and 63 and Express Bus Line 103, and the Virginia Light Rail Station and the Tamien CalTrain Station. See the public transportation schedules.

How long is the performance?
Approximately 2 hours and 10 minutes, including a 15-minute intermission.

Can I drop my child off at the park and pick up after the show?
Yes. However, Silicon Valley Shakespeare is not responsibile for any unattended children.

Is food available at the show?
We have a concession stand where you can purchase snacks, wine (Willow Street only), water, and cold beverages.

Can we bring a picnic?
Of course! There are several areas in the park to enjoy a picnic before the show.

Are these shows appropriate for children?
We provide entertainment for the entire family, and our free park productions are intended to be family friendly. There is graphic content inherent in many of Shakespeare’s works, so we suggest that parents familiarize yourselves with the play and determine if it is appropriate for your child. We provide a Family Rating system.

What about dogs?
Well socialized dogs on a leash are welcome. Please tend to them as you would in any public setting.

Is Shakespeare in the Park a dress-up affair?
Not at all! We recommend shoes that have good footing so you can comfortably walk to and from the theatre area. The weather can change quickly, so we suggest bringing something warm for later in the evening. Any hats should not obstruct someone else’s view.[/vc_column_text][templatera][/vc_accordion_tab][vc_accordion_tab title=”Family Rating System”][vc_column_text css=”.vc_custom_1572984038374{margin-bottom: 50px !important;}”]Romeo and Juliet — Rated PG for Parental Guidance[/vc_column_text][vc_single_image image=”2523″ img_size=”250×146″ alignment=”center”][templatera id=”1008″][/vc_accordion_tab][/vc_accordion][vc_row_inner][vc_column_inner][vc_column_text]
