Bringing the works of William Shakespeare to life.

Saratoga Shakespeare Company is known today as one of the major cultural highlights of the Saratoga summer season.
From its proud debut in 2000 with Twelfth Night to its acclaimed interpretation of As Y'All Like It in 2008, the Company lives up to its mission to bring the works of William Shakespeare to life.

Theater professionals in the community created this company to serve the need for free, professional outdoor Shakespeare.
We had a vision of an accessible event that would bring together people of all ages and levels of exposure to theater, with no limitations to the economically disadvantaged or physically challenged.

No other free, professional venue for live productions of Shakespeare exists in the Capital Region, and Historic Congress Park is the ideal venue. It is accessible, centrally located in the heart of Saratoga Springs, and it contains a site ideal for outdoor theater.

Thanks to superior sound, we can accommodate over 1,000 guests per show. Our productions employ professional directors, designers, and actors, with the cooperation of community volunteers in all areas.
An apprentice program helps aspiring theater professionals bridge the gap between training and the world of work.

This is a family-friendly event.

“Excellent company. Shows get better every year! My children now love Shakespeare!”

“I enjoyed your work tremendously! I’ve been able to attend four performances. It never became stale, and I want to thank you all!” 

“We loved it! Excellent work. See you next year.”

“Keep them coming. It’s just great!”
