The Nashville Shakespeare Festival's 2019 Season
Winter Shakespeare 2019: Julius Caesar at Belmont University's Troutt Theater, January 10-27, 2019, and at MTSU's Tucker Theatre in Murfreesboro, January 30 - February 1, 2019.
Directed by Santiago Sosa, our 12th annual Winter Shakespeare production will be attended by up to 8,500 people, including many area high school students.
The Winter production allows The Festival to provide both public performances and daytime school performances. The first eleven winter productions have served over 52,000 Middle Tennessee students and adults. The NSF receives grants to serve at-risk children, who are given the opportunity to experience these productions free of charge.
Summer Shakespeare 2019: The Tempest and Pericles at oneC1TY, August 15 – September 22, 2019, and at Academy Park in Franklin from September 26 - 29, 2019.
Our Annual Summer Shakespeare production will be seen by up to 20,000 people. Advertising opportunities include space in our Playbill and banner advertising at oneC1TY and Academy Park throughout the run of the show. The Nashville Shakespeare Festival relies heavily on the generosity of corporations, foundations, individuals and government agencies for the facilitation of our efforts to provide Shakespearean experiences to Middle Tennessee.
