Picnic Terrace 
Spend time with your friends and ours!

Georgia Shakespeare means more than plays; it is an invitation to spend time with friends, family, co-workers, neighbors or that “special someone.” Take a break from your busy schedule and spend a leisurely evening eating, drinking, and laughing. Then, experience Atlanta’s most exhilarating theatre. It’s the best of all worlds!

With a covered and shaded picnic terrace, you can enjoy Georgia Shakespeare’s picturesque setting, and then go into our state-of-the-art theater for the performance.  Bring a basket, your favorite bottle of wine, and great company.

The picnic terrace opens at 6:30 p.m. for 8pm performances. Tables are available on a first come, first served basis.  Tables are available to be reserved for large groups.  Please call the Box Office at 404.504.1473 or email us for more information.

Georgia Shakespeare now serves beer and wine at our concessions stand!
