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!

Confirmed cities that we will perform in are Long Beach, Rancho Palos Verdes, Hermosa Beach, Redondo Beach (first time since 2007!), Los Angeles, Mission Viejo, Manhattan Beach, Beverly Hills, South Pasadena, Torrance, Rossmoor, 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 34% of the budget. But we have a long way to go. We need to raise  $182,864 to make our budget for this season. 

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.
