Annual Student Shakespeare Festival

Beginning in 2006, each April, the Society produced the Student Shakespeare Festival in Balboa Park, near downtown San Diego, typically with 20-30 local schools participating, and in which elementary, middle, and high school students perform selections from the plays or sonnets, or offer other creative interpretations of Shakespeare's works. In recent years, the festival has had to go online, but the enthusiasm of the students remains high. Our most recent festival took place virtually on April 24, 2021.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

In serving our mission, we endeavor to:

• Foster learning and comprehension of Shakespeare’s works, their context, and how they relate to contemporary society;
• Involve the audience as active participants in the theatrical experience;
• Promote inclusivity and diversity throughout our programming, activities, and audience;
• Serve as an online gateway and curator for the greater San Diego Shakespeare community by advocating area productions, educational events, and other relevant activities.
