Location: High Park, 1873 Bloor St. West, Toronto.
Cost: It’s a pay-what-you-can basis at the entrance however you can reserve premium seats at $25 per adult, which are held up to 7:45pm. Seating is on fist come, first serve basis and the line ups are usually long, hence make sure to be there well before time.
Essentials to carry: Since the plays are out in the open park, there are few things that I would suggest (based on personal experience) that would make your evening more comfortable.
- Cushions to sit on
- Light blanket
- Insect repellent
- Snacks/picnic basket
- Lawn chairs (however with these you may not be able to be seated in front as those are meant for people lounging on the ground. There are a few spots at the back where you can place them)
The play that I watched was “Much Ado About Nothing” and it absolutely was mesmerizing. It was a first time experience for me to witness a play out in the open that also engaged the audience for a bit. The actors were exceptional and breathed passion into every second of their act.
If you ask me, I would strongly suggest that you add this to your bucket list for things to do in Toronto in the summer!
