Nashville Shakespeare Festival

Mission Statement

The mission of Nashville Shakespeare Festival is to educate and entertain the Mid-South community through professional Shakespearean experiences.

The Festival enriches and unifies our community with bold, innovative, and relevant productions along with empowering, participatory educational programs, setting the community standard of excellence in educational outreach and performances of theatre.

In response to the Black Lives Matter movement, we seek to unify Nashville’s diverse theatre audiences as well as increase equity and inclusion in our organization. To that end, we are currently partnering with Kennie Playhouse Theatre, a Nashville company dedicated to African-American playwrights and performers, and beginning in 2021, our programming will include African-American playwrights in addition to Shakespeare.
