CanStage’s 2011 Dream in High Park is performing Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale at the High Park Amphitheatre from June 28 to September 4, 2011, Tuesday to Sunday. The play is one of Shakespeare’s problem plays because it begins as a drama and ends as a comedy. The plot focuses on a king and queen, suspicions of infidelity and an abandoned child.

If you’ve never been to the High Park Amphitheatre, it is located just east of the Grenadier Restaurant and the closest entrance to the theatre is from High Park Blvd. The gates open at 6 p.m. and the play starts at 8 p.m., running for 1 hour and 45 minutes with no intermission. Bring a picnic dinner (no alcohol permitted) or purchase pizza and snacks at the concession stand. Seating is on the hill across from the stage. If you want to get a good seat close to the stage, you should get there as close to 6 p.m. as possible. Washrooms are located inside the gate and are accessible during the performance. Bring a sweater, shoes and socks, and a blanket as it cools down when the sun sets. The play is Pay-What-You-Can, with a suggested minimum of $20, and children 14 and under are free.
