This ain't your High School Shakespeare!

Outdoor Shakespeare on the banks of the St. Lawrence river in Prescott, Ontario.

For 12 years now, our award-winning productions have been delighting audiences from far and wide - and we hope you'll become part of that crowd!

This season we'll be presenting the following:

THE TEMPEST

Directed by Craig Walker, starring David Adams as Prospero

The Tempest was the first show ever produced by the St. Lawrence Shakespeare Festival back in 2003 and after 11 years, we thought it was fitting to revisit this magical tale. Making a welcome return to the Prescott stage after his stunning performance as Shylock in The Merchant of Venice, actor David Adams will be playing the role of Prospero.

THE TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA

Directed by Ian Farthing

This light-hearted tale of love, romance, friendship and the blurred lines in between comes to Prescott for the first time. Infused with music from the jazz era, this Bromantic Comedy will draw on the strong musical talents the company has become known for.

SUNDAY SERIES

On four Sunday afternoons during the Festival, you can experience a mix of music, comedy and wonderful theatre to supplement your mainstage experience!

GLOBE TO GLOBE: HAMLET

On Saturday August 2nd, the Festival hosts Shakespeare's Globe and their world tour of Hamlet. Tickets sold out in less than an hour.
