BUFFALO, NY – Shakespeare in Delaware Park is well on its way, and this season they’ve added some accessibility improvements.
After receiving feedback from audience members with ambulatory and mobility issues, organizers have added new measures to make performances more physically inclusive.
Additional measures include a free Shakespeare Express shuttle, more lighting along paved pathways, exit lighting on the hill and an expanded accessibility platform.
The shuttle will pick up people at the intersection of Rumsey Road and Windsor Avenue.
The Buffalo Olmsted Parks Conservancy added newly paved trails and trail lighting to improve visibility and safety.
For this year’s season, there will be two productions on the main stage. The first major production is “As You Like It,” which runs now until July 17. The second is “A Midsummer Night’s Dream,” which will run from July 28 to August 21.
In addition to the two main productions, Shakespeare in Delaware Park will also bring back its touring troupe. Organizers say the performances will take place in more than 20 parks across Western New York.
More information about Shakespeare in Delaware Park as well as a full list of dates and locations for the touring troupe can be found on the Shakespeare in Delaware Park website.
