Summer 2022 | John Hinkel Park Not Ready | New Plans

Due to construction delays and the resulting uncertainty of when and if John Hinkle Park would be available, Actors Ensemble is presenting its 2022 outdoor summer show "Fortinbras" at Kensington Amphitheater in Kensington, with no other productions scheduled this summer.  The amphitheater is not as accessible by public transportation as we'd like, but if you venture out we promise you a great show in a beautiful location. We'll return to Hinkle Park for our 2023 outdoor summer season.

Thank You
