Shakespeare San Francisco (SF Shakes) produces free shows in parks throughout the Bay Area for 25,000 patrons each year, and its year-round programming includes a Shakespeare on Tour program that now reaches 100,000 students annually at more than 150 schools, libraries, and community centers statewide. Renewed funding would enable SF Shakes to deepen its engagement with communities in the East and South Bay and sustain its highly subsidized arts education and summer camp programs in low-income communities.

In addition, it provides free or low-cost year-round education programs for youth, an internship program for aspiring theater professionals, and a statewide Shakespeare on Tour program that reaches another 100,000 people annually.
