Shakespeare in Fremont Park is a seven-week program involving community based organizations in South Bend. Focused on the city’s west side, the effort affords young people the opportunity to work directly with adults to create, rehearse, and perform a theatre production inspired by Shakespeare. Rehearsing indoors, Shakespeare in Fremont Park 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, playground equipment, and new basketball courts), with an offering open to all, which residents can enjoy whether on stage, behind it, or even simply enjoying a show from a blanket or lawn chair.
