Kentucky Shakespeare is the Official Shakespeare Festival of the Commonwealth as designated by the Kentucky legislature. We are a not-for-profit charitable organization, professional theatre company, and the most comprehensive in-school arts provider in the state.
Grounded in the works of Shakespeare, we enrich our community by presenting accessible, professional theatre experiences that educate, inspire, and entertain people of all ages.
Vision: To use Shakespeare’s universal truths and the power of the arts to transform lives.
Shakespeare belongs to everyone.
We produce the annual Kentucky Shakespeare Festival in Louisville’s Central Park, and year-round education and outreach events.
