About WI Shakespeare Festival
The Wisconsin Shakespeare Festival believes in the power of words and the stories they tell. Our exuberant celebration of brilliant theatre seeks to ignite a spark to empower and inspire artists, as well as enlighten and connect audiences and the community.
Our focus is on building community - we will accomplish this through continuously adding impactful community partnerships, growing our educational programming, and expanding our programming repertoire. We are proud to continue to develop our initiatives and organizational structure in response to the needs of our community and its artists.
We focus on the essence of Shakespeare’s artwork, questioning norms regarding love, power, and possibility. As one of the most-produced playwrights of all time, Shakespeare’s works continue to be relevant through his use of language and wordplay. We invite you to join us in rediscovering his works in a new light.
