Join us in the Friends Section at Twelfth Night this summer!
July 23 - August 10, 2014

Reserving a chair in the newly renamed Friends Section is now a benefit of supporting the CSC Fund, which with grants and sponsorships makes Free Shakespeare on the Common possible.  Make a minimum donation of $50 and receive one reserved chair in the CSC Friends Section for a performance of Twelfth Night this summer on the Boston Common, as well as other special benefits.

Anyone can become a Friend of CSC!      Eventbrite - Twelfth Night

  Space is limited.  Online reservations can be made up to four hours prior to the performance.  A limited number of chairs will be available on-site for $50 each.  The Friends Section will open for seating 90 minutes before curtain and must be claimed 30 minutes before curtain or risk being released. 

All donations are NON-REFUNDABLE.  We are happy to try to exchange chair reservations to a different evening if the request is received at least 24 hours in advance or if the performance is cancelled due to inclement weather.  Black out dates do apply.  Due to the high volume of reservations, CSC is not able to reschedule chairs if they go unclaimed.

Don't forget to order your picnic boxes!  Picnic boxes from Earl of  Sandwich are BACK!  Take a look at this year's menu and consider making a $15 donation now to enjoy a picnic box when you are on the Common for Twelfth Night this summer.
