Shakespeare Dallas regrets to announce its Summer 2020 season has been cancelled. In light of the current health crisis and concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic, we felt it necessary to cancel in order to ensure the continued wellbeing of our organization, artists and the community we serve. We look forward to once again bringing Shakespeare to life this fall when we present Romeo and Juliet.
