Since 1991, our outdoor Shakespeare Festival has been a summertime mainstay. Today, "Shakespeare Under the Stars" delights thousands each July at our home on the beautiful campus of the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford.
Whether working with a local historical house to devise an original immersive theatrical experience or partnering with an arts venue to bring classic stories to life through radio theatre, we find ways to enrich the cultural life of Greater Hartford.
Our trademark style makes Shakespeare understandable and accessible to both young and old and honors the spirit of the original works by delivering soulful performances that are rooted in a scholarly approach to the text.
