Ditch the long queues in Manhattan for Shakespeare in the Park and view the Bard's productions in Queens.

This summer, for the sixth year running, local Queens theater company Hip to Hip Theatre Company will be performing free plays in ten Queens parks, including Flushing Meadows-Corona Park and Sunnyside Park.

Theater enthusiasts can see the plays "Hamlet" and "The Comedy of Errors" from July 25 to August 18.

There is no need to get tickets to the play- organizers suggest just bringing a blanket and your love for Shakespeare. 

The event starts at 7:30 p.m. More details and a full listing of all the venues are on the Hip to Hip Theatre Company website.
