Review the St. Louis Shakespeare Festival’s 2022 Season including Shakespeare in the Park, TourCO, and the ninth annual Shakespeare in the Streets productions. Plus so much more off-stage!

Off-Stage

Confluence New Play Festival
March 18 – 25 @ 3333 Washington Ave
We witnessed the future of American theater with staged readings from the 2020 and 2021 Confluence Regional Writers Project playwrights and over 150 guests.

Melting the Darkness @ Old Post Office Plaza
On May 5, we hosted the 22nd Season Gala celebrating the stars of St. Louis’s past, present and future. Learn more.

Shakespeare Movie Weekend 
MAY 19, 20 & 21 @ Shakespeare Glen
The rain may have damped the weekend but we still planned Shakespeare-inspired films in partnership with Cinema St. Louis with 10 Things I Hate About You starring Heath Ledger and Julia Stiles based on Shakespeare’s The Taming of the Shrew, 1994’s The Lion King, based loosely on Hamlet, and the St. Louis-born Vincent Price’s Theatre of Blood, a camp horror-comedy in which a slighted Shakespearean actor (Price) seeks poetic and murderous revenge on his critics – killing them in the same ways made infamous by Shakespeare.

Shakespeare Night @ Busch Stadium 
On May 24 fans with a special theme ticket took home a Shakespeare-themed Cardinals t-shirt. Plus, a portion of each ticket was donated back to us.
