Shakespeare by the Sea Festival 2017: 25th Anniversary Season


From Home Port to Uncharted Waters

Shakespeare by the Sea makes use of the unique and rugged landscapes of this province to stage Shakespeare’s works. It’s an outdoor Shakespeare experience unlike anywhere else. This summer, to celebrate 25 years of this tradition, the anniversary season will feature the first show the festival ever produced and a Shakespeare play never staged here before, as the festival goes from home port to uncharted waters in summer 2017!
