About Us:

You take your seat just as the lights go down.  The curtain rises, and all at once you are transported to a miraculous foreign land:  The battlements of Elsinore castle.  A beach in Illyria.  A blasted heath in Scotland.  A canal in Venice.  A throne room in Sicilia, or Athens, or Egypt.  A street in Rome, or Verona, or Ephesus, or anywhere in all the globe.

Our Mission:

The Michigan Shakespeare Festival’s mission is to inspire and entertain diverse audiences with evocative, interesting, and epic productions of classical theatre’s greatest plays. 

As the Official Shakespeare Festival of the State of Michigan, the Michigan Shakespeare Festival is a professional Equity theatre company (LOA/LORT) dedicated to producing world-class classical plays.  Now in preparation for our 21st year, we perform in Jackson's lovely Baughman Theatre, and in 2015 are expanding to Canton's beautiful Village Theatre of Cherry Hill.
