Socially-Distanced. But live, together, and emotionally close

Your donation now will help us retain our artists and teachers as we look forward to our 40th season of excellent and responsive programming both virtually and in-person!


As we all emerge from the pandemics of the past year, we at SF Shakes need your financial support to keep doing what we do best: overcoming obstacles to make great Shakespeare accessible to everyone.


The past year tested us. We experienced major losses of earned revenue from our Shakespeare Camps and Shakespeare On Tour program, struggled to keep staff and artists employed, and endured a very real challenge to the nature of live theater.


What never wavered was our shared belief in the transformative power of the performing arts.


We are still "meeting this moment" with new ways to deliver Shakespeare. Last summer, we brought you Free Shakespeare @ Home and Virtual Shakespeare Camps in a new distance-learning format. We continue to innovate our artistic and education programming with Shakespeare's Heartbeat for autistic students, Takes On Shakes for teachers, parents, and students, Virtual Playshops, and our Making Virtual Theater Webinar Series.
