After a sabbatical in 2012, "Penfold in the Park" returns to the Round Rock Amphitheater with Shipwrecked! Made possible through a partnership with the City of Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department, "Penfold in the Park" is a series of free, outdoor, family-friendly productions offered every summer. Each performance begins with a pre-show by a guest artist or organization, making the production a true community event.

The play itself is by Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright Donald Magulies and is formally titled Shipwrecked! An entertainment: The amazing adventures of Louis de Rougemont (as told by himself). It is a love letter to the “old-school” tradition of theatrical storytelling. Shipwrecked! takes the audience around the world with little more than three actors and the power of imagination. Barely five years old, this play has delighted audiences of all ages at regional theatres across the country. Click here to read a full synopsis. For more information, visit the show's webpage.
