In Nature’s Studio brings performing artists out from inside the theater to the beautiful Reading Public Museum Arboretum. Solo performers (music, dance, theater) will be stationed throughout the landscape areas along the accessible walking path.  Each will perform their own work on a schedule, either a short work on repeat or a longer piece or collection of pieces for up to 90 minutes.  

The audience may experience in Nature’s Studio in multiple ways: 

  • Guided Walk – Reserve a spot on the “guided tour” to walk the path with a guide from Reading Theater Project.  This will ensure you see every performance along the path. Space is limited and a reservation is recommended. 
  • Anytime Independent Walk – Promenade along the path on your own and stop along the way to see the performances at your own pace. Unlimited space.

All tickets are free, donations welcome.

Presented by Reading Theater Project, in partnership with JCWK Dance Lab and the Reading Public Museum.
