Other Past Venues
The outdoor in-person performances of Much Ado About Nothing were on the lawn in front of the visitor center at Breakheart Reservation, a state park, at 177 Forest Street / Saugus, Massachusetts 01906. From US route 1, take the exit to Lynn Fells Parkway. Just past the Target store, turn right (north) on Forest Street. Use the parking lot at the Kasabuski Rink. For matinee performances the park is crowded, so you are advised to park at the Target store. The visitor center is a short walk from the Target or the Rink. Patrons should bring their own lawn chairs or blankets to sit on; we will have a few chairs available.

Enter the building from Central Street, using the sidewalk and entry to the left of the main sanctuary doors.
