Anyone attend the Shakespeare Under the Stars: Much Ado About Nothing in Hopkinton already?

Is it kids (8 and 5) friendly?

I haven’t been, but it must be kid friendly. Hopkinton is such a family oriented town. Your kids may not understand it, but then you always have to option of picking up and leaving if they don’t like it (assuming you are sitting on the fringes). You know your kids, will they sit and watch, or will they just want to run around and make noise? If it’s the latter, consider staying home.
