Shady Shakespeare Theatre Company is committed to making Shakespeare accessible to people of all ages and backgrounds and to building community through cultural participation. Our mission is to share the works of William Shakespeare in a way that demystifies the rich and challenging language of Shakespeare without dumbing it down. We currently produce two plays in repertory each summer, free-to-the-public.
Shady Shakespeare (a nonprofit 501(c)3 organization) is operated entirely by volunteers whose duties include everything from set and costume production, to fundraising, to concession sales, and much more. Our audience ranges from long-time theatre lovers to families with young children who are experiencing theatre for the first time. We hope you will consider joining the SSTC family either by volunteering or by simply coming to enjoy a show.
