Still timeless. Still ticketless. Still admission-free. Always magical.

2024 PERFORMANCE SCHEDULE & LOCATIONS

This year’s schedule is filled with both returning favorites and new locations! Our tour this year will bring admission-free Shakespeare to 16 different parks. 

This year’s cities are: Long Beach, Rossmoor, Rancho Palos Verdes, Hermosa Beach, Wilmington, Redondo Beach (2 parks), Manhattan Beach, South Pasadena, Beverly Hills, Mission Viejo, Torrance, Los Angeles, Santa Ana, Aliso Viejo and San Pedro. 

This season will cost $279,620. With committed tour fees, and government and individual support to date, we have secured 54.17% of the budget. But we have a long way to go. We need to raise  $118,142  to make our budget for this season. Check out how much funding is still needed to support each location and donate to help support the performance in your city! 

Tour Fees and Sponsorships only support a portion of the costs to produce the festival. As it has been since the beginning, the audiences who love what SBTS brings to their neighborhoods truly make the magic happen. You can ensure that we continue to thrive and bring quality Shakespeare to the public through a tax-deductible donation.
