We couldn't do it without you! With the world in the grip of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Arts are more important than ever to people in our community and throughout the world.  

Social distancing precludes gathering together to share a common theatrical experience in person, but technology is helping bridge the gap.  Our sponsors believe in our mission and believe that the show must go on.  Their dedication and support is especially important to all of us and we thank them for their continued belief in our mission of providing free professional Shakespeare productions for all.

We believe that participation in the Arts or Cultural activities keep kids from picking up guns in the first place. 

Vibrant Arts communities bring value to the  Florida economy, and add to their livability.  Using the Americans for the Arts impact calculator, Florida Shakespeare Theater's January shows generate over $500,000 worth of economic impact to our community. 

Please support our sponsors. We couldn't do it without them.

The State of Florida Division of Cultural Affairs


The Florida Shakespeare Theater's season is sponsored in part by the State of Florida, Department of State, Division of Cultural Affairs and the Florida Council on Arts and Culture.

Thanks to our Governor and the state government for recognizing the importance of the arts to our people and our economy.  

The City of Miami Commissioner Ken Russell


Commissioner Russell has been a long-time supporter of the arts in general and  Free Shakespeare in the Park in particular.  He is a strong believer in the idea that the arts contribute to the quality of life of our citizens and also contributes to the economic engine that makes the City of Miami  a great place to live and work.
