Parking information:  Elision Playhouse has a free adjacent parking lot.  If that is full, there is also street parking along Brunswick Avenue (east of the building) behind the back entrance of our parking lot. PLEASE DO NOT PARK IN ANY OF THE RED SHADED AREAS. The small lot as you enter is reserved for Keng's Restaurant.  There is NO parking between 42nd Avenue and our back driveway, but it is fine to park beyond that. The Brunswick United Methodist Church has also graciously offered the use of their parking lot behind the church for overflow parking. Other nearby street parking is also available. Thanks to Terrence Joyce for the great map below!
