NEW for Get Out and Play Day: Live Theater in the Park

This is the first year we’ve been able to add live theater at Sequoia Park as one more event for #gopd2017.

Thanks to the Northcoast Repertory Theater, the whole family can enjoy “Love’s Labour Lost – Abridged.”  Basically, it’s the short and sweet version of Shakespeare’s classic comedy of love and manners and – even if you’ve never been to see a Shakespearian play – it will be great fun for the entire family.
