“Enchanted spots nestled deep within charmed forests tend to be accessible by magic only. …And there it is, an arrestingly intimate and inviting outdoor performing space, all but hidden in the heart of Caponi Art Park’s 60 stunning acres of wilderness, right smack in—if not of—Eagan as we know it”
– Gwendolyn Freed, Star Tribune
Theater in the Woods
Theater in the Woods is a large outdoor amphitheater nestled in the park’s hilly landscape and made intimate by a canopy of trees.
A unique setting for theatrical, musical and literary performances, Theater in the Woods boasts a large brick open-air stage, near perfect acoustics, plentiful grassy and ledge seating, and the feeling of the North Woods right in the middle of Eagan.
Programs that take place in the Theater in the Woods include the Summer Performance Series, Shakespeare Festival, and Poets in the Park teen poetry slam.
Bring a blanket or lawn chair and enjoy the show!
