California Shakespeare Theater
With Shakespeare’s depth of humanity as our touchstone, we build character and community through authentic, inclusive, and joyful theater experiences.
Through Cal Shakes’ artistic engagement program, we invite more people to engage with theater in different ways. Our projects take performances to unusual places, support deep artist/community collaborations, and celebrate the artist in everyone.
We believe that through deep collaboration, artists and community members can lift up each other’s work: starting conversation, sharing stories, bridging difference, and activating deeper civic participation.
