Idaho Shakespeare Festival

Mission

The Festival’s mission is to produce great theater, entertain and educate. 

Vision

To realize this mission, the Festival seeks to:

Develop an artistic home for theater artists that supports emerging actors, encourages new regional and national playwrights, promotes sustained employment opportunities for artists and attracts the very best artistic staff;

Educate through a range of programs, including programs and tours for K – 12 children and teachers, ongoing adult education, interpretive programming, affiliations with universities and cultural organizations, as well as residencies and training opportunities for actors;

Illuminate human nature and our rich cultural heritage through a repertory that includes the plays of William Shakespeare, the richest and most complex in the English language, together with other works from a variety of dramatic periods and genres; and

Promote cultural understanding through highlighting diverse traditions and supporting artists and audiences of all ages, ethnicities and backgrounds.

It’s one thing to take on a landmark piece of musical theater, such as “Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street.” It’s another to turn it into a transformative work of art, and that’s what the Idaho Shakespeare Festival achieved Saturday.
