The mission of Shakespeare Miami is to promote literacy, culture and a passion for the arts through free performances of the works of William Shakespeare.
The Cost of a family attending a cultural event together has become prohibitively expensive for the average family in America. Schools have cut arts programming and field trips to see live performances. Often, the first live theatrical production a family in South Florida attends is a free Shakespeare in the Park Event.
We believe that when people attend or participate in cultural activities, they open their minds to new ideas, and they can enrich their lives and the lives of others through live performance. The arts can inspire, heal, lead and entertain.
Live theater has the capacity to trigger reflection, generate empathy, create dialogue and foster new ideas that broaden relationships. Shakespeare's plays, although 400+ years old, touch on profound human truths, and offer us powerful and democratic ways of expressing, sharing and shaping human values.
