Marin Shakespeare Company is one of the North Bay’s leading performing arts organizations. As you venture into the rustic but welcoming Forest Meadows Amphitheatre each summer, we hope you experience the thrill of anticipation, the excitement of knowing you will hear and see something extraordinary. Our performances entertain, enlighten, thrill, tickle and tantalize as Shakespeare's words and characters leap from the page to the stage.
Education/outreach programs continue year-round. Each year, over 3,500 students participate in programs including:
- In-school drama programs for 1,800 students at public elementary schools serving large numbers of low-income families
- Year-round Shakespeare classes
- Summer Shakespeare camps
- Acting and Tech Intern Programs
- Student Matinees for 30+ schools
- Free Teen Touring Company performances at schools and senior centers
- Shakespeare at San Quentin, now in its 11th year.
We need your help to ensure these high quality programs will continue to thrive in the year to come. Ticket sales and tuitions cover only half of our annual budget. Your support is vital.
Please make as generous a tax-deductible donation as you can. Then give yourself a hand for helping us make treasured Shakespearean performances and valuable education programs available to the entire community. We applaud you.
