Shakespeare by the Sea 2020 Season is Cancelled due to COVID19.

“It is heartbreaking for all of us at SBTS to cancel the 2020 season. We will certainly miss seeing all of our wonderful audience members, actors, production team and friends this summer.

We’ll definitely be making plans for 2021 – so stay tuned.

Do your best to stay healthy everyone!”

– Lisa Coffi, Producing Artistic Director

SBTS Actor Fund

California’s AB5 bill affects SBTS. If you love SBTS and love our actors as much as we do, then please consider showing your affection by offering direct support to our SBTS Actors with a $25/mo or a full year $300 gift.

We need 200 Terrific People to participate to fill the fund for this year. Become one of our Terrific 200 today!

Both shows will run in repertory for 4 weeks in San Pedro before touring LA and Orange County Parks until Aug 15. Check out our calendar or locations to see if we’ll be coming to a park near you!

Become a BIG FISH with SBTS by making a donation to support the festival today.  All donations are welcome – both large and small – they all add up to funds that get spent on the set, costumes, flyers, gas, insurance — all those items necessary to our festival operations.


Southern California business owners – we need your support! Just think about how many of your customers are at our shows and will appreciate your support of Shakespeare by the Sea.
