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

Thank you for an incredible season! 

Thank you to the more than 13,000 people who attended a Shakespeare by the Sea performance this season. 

Our filmed productions will be released in December for virtual viewing!

We still need your help!  

At SBTS, we are dedicated to keeping our performances admission-free. Without ticket income, we rely on grants, foundations, corporate sponsors, and our Big Fish family of donors to help us keep our performances admission-free. Sponsors and grants make up only 30 percent of the funding required to produce these performances. Our Big Fish family truly makes the magic happen every year. Our 26th season is not yet fully funded- we still need to raise $20,400 to fully fund this season. Help us keep these programs admission-free!
