Mission Statement

Through scholarly research and active theatrical collaboration, Venture Shakespeare shares active, inspired productions of Shakespeare’s plays that are bursting with all the elements of life.


With education at the helm we seek to create compelling and meaningful rehearsals for the company and performances for the audience.

Vision into Practice

To create a company of professional actors and theatre artists who come together each summer in order to research, collaborate and create purposeful work for a sustaining career in the theatre.

That through an application and audition/portfolio process students between 18-23 year olds come to learn, engage, and create alongside working professionals.

By fostering young professionals we encourage our young company members to create a sustainable and focused work ethic. They will have a support network outside of the rigor of the k-12 school system. Have inspired and significant job training. Hone their skills in time management, inter and intrapersonal skills, work as a community and ultimately brave a new world.

The Professionals will be able to share their knowledge and skills. Rekindle their love of learning and collaborating. Find joy and rejuvenation through teaching. Mentor and support the next generation of theatre makers and theatre goers.
