The Central Coast Shakespeare Festival

1850 Calle Joaquin
San Luis Obispo, CA 93405



The Central Coast Shakespeare Festival is committed to providing professional, entertaining productions of Shakespeare's work as well as other timeless and classical stories.

We believe in nurturing future theatre going audiences by presenting live theatre in a beautiful outdoor setting.

We believe in providing local artists the opportunity to work alongside visiting professionals.

We believe in the power of theatre to change lives. Artists and Audience's alike.

We believe in adding to the rich and varied cultural community that the Central Coast already enjoys.

We believe watching Shakespeare outdoors, with a delicious picnic dinner and a fine, fine bottle of syrah is just about as good as it gets.

We believe you should come see our shows this season. Both of them.

We believe that work is love made visible.

We believe in spit takes. Oh, yes we do. And pies in the face.
