WELCOME TO SHAKESPEARE DALLAS

We’re glad you’re here. Using Shakespeare’s works as a cornerstone, our mission is to bring fun and accessible indoor and outdoor theatre, integrated school programs, and cultural enrichment for people of all ages and backgrounds.

SHAKESPEARE AND THE SUFFRAGISTS

As we mark 100 years since the passage of the 19th amendment, Shakespeare Dallas explores how Shakespeare’s works influenced the fight.

Led by Associate Artistic Director Jenni Stewart, Shakespeare and the Suffragists is a new virtual performance project that examines Shakespeare’s more feminist texts and how they have been interpreted and reinterpreted over time. This provocative work will be available for streaming through November 30. Register now and a link to access the content will be emailed.

MAKE A GIFT

Your generosity supports Shakespeare Dallas’ mission to make fun cultural programming accessible to everyone. There is a reason why over 450 years after his birth, we are all still celebrating the immortal bard. Please help us continue this celebration by making a gift today.
