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.
