Colorado Shakespeare Festival
March 3, 2010
The Colorado Shakespeare Festival, a professional theatre company in residence on the campus of the University of Colorado at Boulder, has been performing for more than 50 years. Since 2007, the company has expanded its repertory to embrace classic plays from other cultures, including great American plays. Primarily a summer festival (with the exception of one holiday play), CSF plays "under the stars" and on the University Theater's indoor Main Stage. Picnicking before the plays, a lovely Shakespeare Garden and green shows make this a complete and delightful summer evening experience. Excellent acting and high production values make this festival a "must do" of Coloradans and visitors to the Denver/Boulder area.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
being an audience member for more than 90 plays over 25 years.
What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...
its roots in the community and the tradition of plays "under the stars" in the summertime.
The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...
enthusiastic, intelligent and committed.
If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...
Hire more equity actors, flesh out its staff which is struggling under the weight of budget cuts, and utilize the work of more volunteers.
