About Us

  • Shakespeare By The Sea Festival Inc., a community-based, charitable organization, produces and promotes artistic works with a focus on William Shakespeare. Our organization unites seasoned and developing talent and aspires to excel in all aspects of our work.
  • The Shakespeare By The Sea Festival is the longest running outdoor summer theatre event in the St. John's area and celebrated its 20th season in 2012.
  • Since 1993, the Shakespeare By The Sea Festival has been performing the works of that famous Bard all around the St. John's area – from the cliff-top meadows of Logy Bay to the historic World War Two bunkers at Cape Spear – from the cobblestoned courtyard of the Murray Premises to the lush landscapes of Bowring Park. Since that time, the Festival has grown into a much-anticipated annual event.
  • Shakespeare By The Sea Festival Inc. is a registered charity (No. 891781841RR0001) with the Canada Revenue Agency and is a proud member of the Shakespeare Theatre Association and the Institute of Outdoor Drama.
