Since its founding in 2000, the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival has grown dramatically from a daring experiment to a celebrated campus tradition that furthers the mission of the University. As the professional theatre in residence at the University of Notre Dame, the Notre Dame Shakespeare Festival's Professional Company presents world-class productions while fostering young theatre artists through unique educational production and performance opportunities such as our Touring Company and ShakeScenes programs.

Today, housed in the dazzling Marie P. DeBartolo Center for the Performing Arts and historic Washington Hall, we reach thousands of people each year with Shakespeare's timeless words.
