Shakespeare in Greenport and Patchogue

July 24, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

The Northeast Stage’s company transforms the outdoors into a grand theater, presenting William Shakespeare’s The Comedy of Errors for boaters and others to enjoy. This fun farce of a play, filled with mistaken identity, slapstick, and groan-worthy puns, is presented free of charge in two locations.

On Thursday, Friday, and Saturday August 3-5, the tale of identical twins separated at birth unfolds at Greenport’s Mitchell Park at 7:00 pm each evening.

Spend some additional time in Greenport. It’s a bustling maritime village with attractions such as the East End Seaport Museum, the 1840 Schoolhouse Museum, the Fire Fighter fireboat, the 1920 carousel at Mitchell Park, and the Blacksmith’s Shop. Dining is also a big part of the fun of a visit to Greenport — there are numerous places within walking distance that will satisfy every theater lover’s appetite.

On Sunday, August 6, Shakespeare’s humor bursts forth at Shorefront Park in Patchogue at 7:00 pm.

The park-turned-stage is a short ride from transient docking at Morgan’s Swan River Marina (631-758-3524), Sunset Harbour (631-289-3800), West Bank Marina and Yacht Club (631-804-0595), and Frank M. Weeks Yacht Yard (631-475-1675). Be sure to call ahead.
