Shakespeare in the Streets

Sits Circle

Shakespeare in the Streets is a nine-week program involving community based organizations in South Bend. Focused on the city’s west side, the effort will allow young people to work directly with adults to create, rehearse, and perform a theatre production inspired by Shakespeare. Working and rehearsing indoors, Shakespeare in the Streets will perform outside at Fremont Park (1800 Fremont St at W Hamilton St).

Emerging from the mission of the Fremont Park Foundation, which seeks to provide positive activities for young people and adults alike, the community wishes to build on its recent successes (a new splash pad and new basketball courts), with an offering open to all. Participants can perform on stage, volunteer behind it, or just enjoy the show from a blanket or lawn chair.

Project Partners: Fremont Park, Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival, South Bend Parks & Recreation DepartmentLa Casa de AmistadFar Northwest Neighborhood Association, Kingdom Christian Church, and more to come.
