Your Visit

Hudson Valley Shakespeare Festival performs under a beautifully designed open-air theater tent on the grounds of  Boscobel House and Gardens, on the bank of the Hudson river. The backdrop to our productions is the magnificent Hudson Highlands.  The theater seats 540 and the tent allows us to perform in all weather, rain or shine!

Plan on arriving at least 15 minutes before the show, so you have time to park, collect tickets, and enjoy the walk and the views on the way to the tent.
