San Francisco Shakespeare Festival is best known for our summer Free Shakespeare in the Park production, and we have other performances year-round, including our professional tour, student performances, staged readings, and special guest presentations.

Romeo and Juliet

This classic tale is as relevant today as it was in Shakespeare’s time. The action of the story is easily understood and provides an excellent introduction to both Shakespeare and drama that will be appreciated on a variety of levels. Its swash-buckling action scenes and poetic language will engage audiences of all ages! SF Shakes Resident Artist Carla Pantoja, directs this exciting and poignant tale of star-crossed romance, performed in Shakespeare’s original text. Touring from October 2017-April 2018.
