Our society was founded in 2008 to provide residents of the Bismarck-Mandan area with free exposure to the life and works of William Shakespeare. We have expanded our program to include a successful Children's Renaissance Faire with free and engaging learning opportunities for people of all ages.
Every year we seek to awaken the imagination of our community by bringing one of Shakespeare's timeless classics to life. We are proud to offer our production for free on the beautiful grounds of our capitol building in Bismarck. Our focus is to attract people of all ages and backgrounds to our outdoor event, as we believe that Shakespeare's works are engaging, entertaining, and inspiring to all audiences.
In 2009, just one week before our second annual summer performance, founder and president of the organization, Crystal Reid, suddenly died. In the spirit of theater, the show opened to crowds of 300 plus each evening. It is our goal to continue to fulfill Crystal's dream of bringing our community the experience of live Shakespearean theater.
