COVID-19 Important Update: PSF has canceled all performances in the 2020 season.

PSF Sponsors

Each season, before a single line is memorized or a swordfight choreographed, sponsors commit their support to Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival. Without their generosity, ticket prices would double. We thank all of our 2020 sponsors – corporations, individuals and foundations – for their partnership with Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival.
