FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions 
 

How do I get there?
 
Here's a map to our Outdoor Theater at Jack Townshend Point. The Outdoor Theatre is just north of the Frisbee Golf course between the UA Museum of the North and the Reichardt Building. Head up to upper campus at the University of Alaska Fairbanks and turn off Yukon Drive at the UA Museum of the North. Park in the back parking lot and follow the path that heads from the parking lot toward the theater.
 
Where do I park?
Our audiences are welcome to park in the UA Museum of the North back parking lot. Parking is free in that lot during the shows.
 
Is the theater ADA Accessible?
Absolutely! Anyone who would have a hard time making it down the path is welcome to drive down to the theater. Turn off Yukon Drive into the Reichardt Building driveway and follow it to the back parking lot. At the end of the parking lot, follow the dirt road down to the theater. Go very slowly and procede with caution as there are likely to be many pedestrians in the area. You can drive right to the door of the theater and we will help you find your seat. Please arrive about 30 minutes before the show for ease of drop-off. There is also an ADA Accessible Sani-Can available. 
 
What should I bring?
We are an open air theater in a beautiful meadow. We have chairs and seating platforms for the audience, so you don't need to bring your own. Bring sunscreen and sunglasses on hot days, rain gear and blankets on cool days. There is no roof, so be prepared for any weather, rain or shine.
 
Can I bring a picnic?
We will have a concession stand with soda, candy and popcorn available. You are welcome to bring your own refreshments and food, just please clean up after yourselves to help us avoid squirrels upstaging the performance. You are also welcome to come early and picnic on the field up by the Museum. However, there is no grass to picnic on while you watch the show.
 
Is the show appropriate for families? 
FST is an educational theatre company dedicated to sharing the magic of Shakespeare with students by welcoming them at no charge to all our performances. Macbeth is filled with references to witchcraft and magic, lots of swordfights and incidences of stage violence and some kissing is displayed. FST considers the show as appropriate for students of all ages but of course: "to thine own self be true."
 
What if I'm late?
We will seat you as soon as possible during the next scene transition.
