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.

FALL BOOK CLUB SESSIONS

We have TWO new Book Clubs headed your way. In September and October we will be reading and discussing Measure for Measure. In November we’ll explore Troilus and Cressida together. Book Clubs are fun, comfortable gatherings currently held on Zoom.

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 in mid-October. Pre-register now and a link to access the content will be emailed beginning October 15.

WILL ON THE WEB

Will on the Web is our expanded virtual classroom, offering comprehensive learning tools covering 6 of Shakespeare’s greatest plays.

Each play has four separate learning blocks: Plot, History, Text Analysis, and Performance and two separate tracks: Grades 2 though 5 and Grades 6 through 12.

CIRCO METROPOLIS

Laughter League, along with Shakespeare Dallas, presents Circo Metropolis, a pop-up circus experience under the bright blue Texas skies. The all-star cast will  feature renowned speed juggler Dario Vasquez, circus skills phenoms Kelli and Julio Ramazini, Magic Mike Williams, aerialists Circus2Wins, slack wire artist Chet Monday and songbird Lily Monday.

Performances are Saturday and Sunday on October 10-11 and October 17-18 at 1:30 p.m. and 5:00 p.m. Tickets are $15 each or $50 for a family four-pack.
