Greater Hartford Shakespeare Festival
Our summer productions strongly shine
Our Summer Shakespeare Festival has been a mainstay ever since we created Two Gentlemen of Verona in Hartford's Bushnell Park in 1991. Today, the festival delights thousands each July at our current home under the stars on the beautiful campus of the University of Saint Joseph in West Hartford.
Other Classical Events
Entertainment for the community year-round
Whether working with a local historical house to devise an original immersive theatre piece or partnering with an arts venue to bring a classic story to life through radio theatre, we find ways to enrich the cultural life of Greater Hartford.
A Long history of Quality
27 years of accessible and engaging theatre
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.
