Our Future

Setting the Stage for Good

Marin Shakespeare Company is one of the most innovative theatre companies in the Bay Area. We offer extensive education programs for thousands of young people, our ground-breaking “Shakespeare for Social Justice” program that brings Shakespeare as a tool to spark transformation into eight California state prisons, and award-winning summer performances since 1990.

Now, bursting at the seams, we have forged exciting plans to renovate the 50-year old Forest Meadows Amphitheatre, and also modernize our newly acquired space in downtown San Rafael as a new, year-round home for our programs and administrative offices.


Preliminary Design – Forest Meadows

The preliminary design for Forest Meadows features approved acoustics, retractable shade awning for matinees, ADA accessibility, a new entry, and an upgraded picnic area.

At our new year-round home at 514 Fourth Street, we envision a home base for Shakespeare for Social Justice programs and training, arts education programs for all ages, and a variety of theatrical performances, creating a community gathering place for discovery and exploration through theatre.
