Lawn Chair Theater is a summer theater program that has brought outdoor performances to the parks of Westchester since 2005. They have had great fun producing nine summers of Shakespeare. Their casts are multi-generational, blending both professional and amateur performers. Their goal is to contemporize Shakespeare without rewriting him, and to create community through their work and play.
