Shakespeare by the Sea Festival

The Shakespeare By The Sea Festival produces and promotes artistic works with a focus on William Shakespeare. The Festival is the longest running outdoor summer theatre event in the St. John's area, celebrating over 25 years in the area!

Our 2021 season sees our return to in-person theatre following the COVID-19 pandemic, along with an accessible online offering. Residents and visitors to St. John's NL can see "Pericles, Prince of Tyre" performed at The Rooms, Fortis Courtyard and Amphitheatre on Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons - tickets available through The Rooms only. We also see a return of "Tunes and Tales with Kelly Russell", our longstanding partnership show with Kelly performed in a new accessible venue at the First Light Centre for Performance and Creativity. Finally, we are excited to debut an original devised piece, "Depths of Desire: Have you reached the bottom yet", directed by Desirée Leverenz, streaming online on Saturdays and Sundays. Tickets are free (donations accepted), and on sale now
