A prince returns home. His father, murdered. His mother, wed to his uncle. The ghosts of his past, restless. What follows: Love. Confusion. Betrayal. Self-doubt. Violence. Revenge. Delaware Shakespeare Festival presents Hamlet on the grounds of Rockwood Park, outdoors and under the stars for three weeks this summer, from July 11-27.Hamlet is directed by David Stradley, the producing artistic director of Delaware Shakespeare Festival who directed The Winter’s Tale (2011) and A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2012), and stars festival-favorite Griffin Stanton-Ameisen, who played Antigonus in The Winter’s Tale, Puck in A Midsummer Night’s Dream (2012) and Launce in The Two Gentlemen of Verona (2013).This year marks DSF’s 12th season (and ninth year at Rockwood Park), and follows the record-breaking 2013 season when The Two Gentlemen of Verona became the best-selling production in DSF history.Hamlet will run for 13 performances between July 11-27. Performances scheduled Wednesday to Saturday begin at 7:30 p.m., with gates opening at 6:15 p.m. for pre-show entertainment and picnicking.

One winner will claim the coveted Janssen’s Market Picnic Contest trophy and eternal glory (until next year).DSF offers several new ticket options this year:• “Festival Pass:” This all-festival pass provides entrance to an unlimited number of performances during the run of Hamlet.

Curated by RoseLee Goldberg and co-organized by Independent Curators International (ICI), New York and Performa, New York, Performance Now presents a survey of visual performance art at the start of the 21st century. Goldberg first mapped the development of this art form in her seminal 1979 book, Performance Art: From Futurism to the Present. In 2004, she founded Performa, the international organization, and in 2005 started the Performa 05, the first biennial of visual art performance. Performance Now examines the definitive role the medium has taken in contemporary art and culture and includes objects, ephemera, sound and video of the performances displayed through large wall projections and monitors. The exhibition is composed of work by leading artists including Marina Abramovi, Jérôme Bel, Christian Jankowski, William Kentridge, Jesper Just and Laurie Simmons.*Some artworks contain mature content; adults with children may wish to preview the exhibition before visiting.

Run River North went from playing a handful of hometown shows in Los Angeles to performing for an audience of millions on late-night show Jimmy Kimmel Live! It was an explosive trajectory for the sextet, whose uplifting anthems march to the beat of drums, jangling guitars and a rapturous string section. The rapid ascent from obscurity launched a new chapter for the band. Just recently, the band made a splash when it opened for an intimate sold-out Goo Goo Dolls show in the baby grand.The music of Run River North explores the diversities of musical style, from energetic indie-rock interludes to lonesome guitar strums. “We’re not a posh, polished pop sound,” says Alex Hwang, Run River North's singer/songwriter. “We have stories we want to tell and they take a little more time. After all, the journey to find your place is a long one, it’s an ongoing, evolving adventure.”

Come and enjoy one of the last Saturdays of Summer at the Wilmington & Western! Our diesel locomotive will be pulling trains to the Mt. Cuba Picnic Grove on a 1½-hour round-trip. At the grove, you'll enjoy a half-hour layover along the banks of the Red Clay Creek. There will be summertime food and activities throughout the day in the Greenbank Station parking lot.
