Shakespeare in the Park

About the Festival

Southern Shakespeare Company’s (SSC) Free Shakespeare in the Park Festival is held every spring at the heart of the city in Cascades Park. This multi-day event features a mainstage Shakespearean production on the Capital City Amphitheater stage, performances from SSC’s junior performance troupe, The Bardlings, readings from Sonnet Contest winners, local vendors, food trucks, and MORE!

The set, the costumes, the actors and their excellent performance throughout the play all contributed to a feast for the eyes and ears. And for those who are hearing impaired, watching the signers convey the message and emotion was a treat!

I've seen a LOT of Shakespeare, both community and professional, and this show was hands down one of the best I have ever seen. Don't miss out!
