Summer Season


All New York Classical Theatre rehearsals and performances are Free and Open to the Public. Outdoor shows are not ticketed.

How it works:

The audience follow the actors from place to place as the play moves from scene to scene. An average show covers approximately 3 city blocks over 2 hours. Check out our 3-minute video to see how it works!

2. Wear clothes you can sit on the ground in. (Or bring a water-resistant blanket * or light stool) 

3. Do mosquitos love you? Bring some bug spray!
