Making Live Shakespeare Theatre Accessible to the Heartland
Hoosier Shakes’ mission is to reveal the delight of Shakespeare’s theatre, language, and ideas by producing accessible, quality performances for the audiences of eastern Indiana and beyond and by providing not only exceptional, but also developmental experiences for students, and guest professionals.
Hoosier Shakespeare Festival has a vision to inspire communities in central and eastern Indiana and beyond around the adventure of classical theatre.
Hoosier Shakes was a dream that became reality in the fall of 2015. This was a shared three-year long dream that came to fruition after years of work and planning. Hoosier Shakes became associated with the American Shakespeare Center in the fall of 2012. Their association with the ASC enabled Hoosier Shakes to become what it is today: a semi-professional theatre company based out of Marion, Indiana.
What We Do
Hoosier Shakespeare Festival is a non-profit repertory theatre company that specializes in producing outdoor theatre with simple staging practices, live music, and, of course, great quality performances. We hire professional and student artists who, in addition to producing plays, engage in mentorship and artistic development centered around the theatre adventure.
