Support Houston Shakespeare Festival Today

As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, the live performances of King Lear and Cymbeline have been postponed to the summer of 2022, and Houston Shakespeare Festival will present a one-time event.   “Shakespeare Night at the Movies” will be offered for the summer of 2021.  This postponement will have very real financial consequences for our organization.  HSF and other arts institutions rely on the generosity of donors as important partners for long-term sustainability.  If you are able, please join our Houston neighbors in making a charitable contribution in support of Houston Shakespeare Festival's operations as we look forward to our 2022 season.  We are eagerly looking forward to seeing you at Miller Outdoor Theatre very soon.     



Your gift makes our work in the community possible!  Your contribution helps support: 

  • Free summer performances for 20,000-30,000 Houstonians annually  
  • Artists’ wages 
  • Free workshops for K-12 in the Houston Public Library 
  • Digital Shakespeare learning materials for teachers   
  • Designers and technical staff during the HSF summer season 
  • Purchase of costume and crafts materials, wigs and stage weaponry  

The Houston Shakespeare Festival is the professional arm of the University of Houston. The University provides space for HSF and covers a small portion of other expenses, but this free festival is made possible by the support of Houston community. Contributions are essential to our existence. We very much appreciate your financial support.
