How can performances at Island Shakespeare Festival be FREE? The answer is it's not really FREE, but due to the generosity of our merchants and community patrons, we are able to provide a priceless theatre experience at no charge to our audience. So, with that in mind, you may note that our sponsors are front and center on this website and we encourage you to visit their sites. You may also note that these patrons are close to home. We are very proud to have the depth of local support needed to underwrite the cost of productions, leaving the proceeds from our "Pass the Hat" to be shared by our artists!
We do have financial needs beyond the production costs for staff and year-round promotion. That's where you come in!
“Thanks, and thanks; and ever thanks”
Your donation helps us offer the opportunity to everyone to enjoy the cultural experience of live theatre, regardless of one’s ability to pay.
