WASHINGTON HALL PARKING INSTRUCTIONS:
The Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival works hard to ensure your theatre experience is exceptional from start to finish. We understand that experience begins from the moment you arrive on campus. We’ve secured access to the two parking lots located closest to Washington Hall, the ShakeScenes performance venue.
To reach these lots, you must pass through one of two Gatehouses (shown on the map to the right): the North Gatehouse on the Northeast side of campus via Douglas Road or the South Gatehouse on the campus’s Southern edge via Angela Blvd. Guards at both Gatehouses will grant access to all ShakeScenes guests.
Once through the Gatehouse, proceed on Holy Cross Drive (shown as a red line on the map) to the lot marked A9 or A15. Each lot is only 250 yards from Washington Hall.
As you walk to the theatre, keep your eye on the Golden Dome; Washington Hall is its neighbor to the east. The entrance to Washington Hall is on the south side of the building.
ENJOY THE SHOW!
(Note: ShakeScenes performances are free but require a ticket. To guarantee your reservation, please pick-up your will call tickets at Washington Hall at least 15 minutes before your performance. In the event of a sell out, unclaimed will call tickets will be used to seat patrons on the waiting list.)
