Play in the Park

Each summer the department teams up with the Commonwealth Classic Theatre Company (CCTC), to present their Free Theater in the Parks Program in White's Road Park.


Romeo and Juliet

William Shakespeare

Commonwealth Classic Theatre Company (CCTC), the Philadelphia area theatre company that has toured free classic plays to regional parks for over a decade, is excited to announce that their production this summer will be Romeo and Juliet by William Shakespeare.

ROMEO AND JULIET - Young love and old grudges collide in this timeless romantic tragedy. Critically acclaimed director Kathryn MacMillan returns to the CCTC (2010's THE MISER) with a fast paced and thrilling exploration of a divided world, not much different from our own, in which lo‚Äčve struggles to rise above the barriers of hate and fear. Commonwealth Classic Theatre Company (CCTC), celebrates 13 years of bringing free classic plays to regional parks throughout the Greater Philadelphia area. With our Free Theatre in the Parks program, we seek to erase the barriers between audience and art, whether those barriers are geographic, financial or temporal.
