Shakespeare has the power to transform. Here at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, we recognize the relevance, poignancy and complexity of Shakespeare’s words, and we know how vital it is that we continue to stage these profoundly meaningful plays. Each summer, Shakespeare’s 400-year-old stories are brought to life under the stars. We value these plays because they draw our community together in a shared, live experience, and they ask us to reflect on the important questions that shape our world.
When you attend a performance at the Colorado Shakespeare Festival, you are doing much more than seeing a play. You are joining a community of people who care about language, humanity and empathy. We love hearing stories from our patrons who hold CSF memories close: a first date at our theater, a child’s first trip to see a play, a pre-show picnic, an unforgettable production. We truly see our patrons as members of our family, and we are grateful that you are on this journey with us. Shakespeare’s stories are a constant undercurrent to our values and to our vision of how to make a better world.
The tradition of the Colorado Shakespeare Festival is vital to our community. We strive to bring you fresh, lively productions of Shakespeare’s plays, high-caliber performers and artists, as well as education and outreach to Colorado’s K-12 schools. It is supporters like you who enable us to reach new heights. Keep the magic of Shakespeare growing for everyone, make your gift today.
As you know, we are more than a summer festival. CSF Education offers year-round theater training for children, teens and adults. Its innovative Shakespeare & Anti-Bullying program has reached more than 66,000 school children in Colorado. We introduce thousands of students each year to the wonder of Shakespeare and help them cultivate a lifelong relationship with these classic texts.
Donations from supporters and friends are crucial to our continued success. Your gift makes it possible for us to produce high-quality, professional work to enhance our educational and outreach program, and to keep the genius of William Shakespeare alive for future generations. Your gifts mean more than ever in helping CSF to expand its mission and enrich our community.
Make sure to join us in our enchanting 2016 lineup and celebrate our 59th season!
