Worcester Shakespeare Company

50 Douglas Road
Whitinsville, MA 01588

About Us:

The annual Worcester Shakespeare Festival consists of professional actors from New York, Boston and Worcester as well as gifted actors from theatre training programs of Worcester universities.  The festival is committed to making the works of Shakespeare accessible to the people of Central Massachusetts by presenting the plays in a dynamic manner.

Mission Statement:

To perform the plays of William Shakespeare in a dynamic and accessible manner.
To involve as many actors, designers, managers, and audience members as possible in the process of creating a production.
Weather permitting, to perform in an outdoor environment, integrating natural light, ambient sound, and available architecture.
To emphasize the words of Shakespeare as spoken by the actors, rather than visual elements of stage scenery, lighting, or extravagant effects.
Above all, to tell the stories of Shakespeare in ways that illuminate our own imaginations and encourage us to imagine each others' lives.
