Island Shakespeare Festival

Island Shakespeare Festival is about people. Well, and Shakespeare. But also, artists, community, learning, connections, collaborations, music, art, life, the Pacific Northwest, and, oh, yeah, we truly believe that everyone should be able to see quality theatre. Performances are “Pay what you will.”  We “pass the hat” after performances and appreciate donations.  Shakespeare and classical theatre are what we do, but it really is more than that. In some ways, one could say that to us, theatre is sacred.
