Check the Mail and Guardian on Fridays to see what's showing outside of Shakespeare season.
- The annual, open-air Shakespeare under the Stars performances are held at Maynardville. The shows usually run from late January to the end of February. These productions, which have been running for several decades, are set in the sprawling gardens of Maynardville Park. Take along a pre-production picnic and blankets as it might get cold. This is definitely a romantic evening out. The entire site is filled with historical importance and memorabilia. Its gates were once guarding the tomb of Napoleon Bonaparte, and the trees planted here are direct descendants of those from the tombs garden, taken as cuttings in the 1800s. Call for details regarding current and upcoming events.
