Grants to this Grantee
for general operating support  
Shakespeare San Francisco produces free performances in parks throughout the Bay Area for 30,000 people each summer. 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 an additional 100,000 people each year. Its commitment to presenting Shakespeare in communal settings, and casting and staging plays in ways that reflect the communities it serves, encourages broad participation in the arts by reaching thousands of people who otherwise do not attend live theater.
