CONSIDER SPONSORING A SHOW

 

At Woodward Shakespeare Festival, we are excited to gather the community together to explore the “infinite variety” of these plays. There is something about the experience of live outdoor theater that fires the imagination, draws us in, and lightens the spirit, bringing people from diverse backgrounds and walks of life together in a common experience. Please join us this summer for some festival theater!

For our 13th season, WSF will be presenting Twelfth Night and Titus Andronicus. Check it out now!
