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

SF Shakespeare Festival

This is a time of unprecedented complexity for our nation. For SF Shakes, these pandemics have resulted in 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 virtually. 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 Spooky Stories for Spooky Times, Takes On Shakes, Virtual Playshops and Making Virtual Theater Webinar Series.


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