SF Shakespeare Festival
Your financial support helps fulfill the Bay Area’s promise of inclusion and diversity, and is essential to our ability to keep Shakespeare accessible and available to all.

This is a time of unprecedented complexity: major losses of earned revenue from our school tour program, struggling to keep staff and artists employed, and a very real challenge to the nature of live theater.

What isn't wavering is our belief in the transformative power of the performing arts. We are meeting this moment with new ways to deliver Shakespeare by offering content and education virtually. We are committed to bringing you free Shakespeare whether it's in your local park or your living room. Students will still be able to enroll in our summer camps in our new distance-learning format.  

Your donation now will help us retain our artists and teachers as we respond to the Covid-19 crisis and keep doing what we do best: overcoming obstacles to make great Shakespeare accessible to everyone.
