Thank you for your tax-deductible Gift!

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 4,500 students participate in programs including:

  • Creative Dramatics for 2,000 students at public elementary schools serving large numbers of low-income families
  • Shakespeare Workshops for 1,000 middle and high school students
  • Year-round Shakespeare classes at 514 Fourth Street, San Rafael
  • Summer Shakespeare camps for ages 5 through teenagers
  • Acting and Tech Intern Programs
  • Student Matinees for 30+ schools
  • Free Teen Touring Company performances at schools and senior centers
  • Shakespeare Classes at eight California State prisons, using the power of Shakespeare to inspire inmates to learn, grow, set positive goals, and transform their lives.

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.
