Idaho Shakespeare Festival

The actors of Idaho Shakespeare Festival hit the stage for the first time in almost 2 years this summer! As the spotlight shines back down on the great amphitheater, audience members fill the crowd for phenomenal and memorable shows like The Tempest and The Complete Works of William Shakespeare. Find out more below!

The Tempest 

Written by William Shakespeare and directed by Sara Bruner, this powerful and loving show is playing from August 12th-September 5th! You won’t want to miss this! Buy your tickets here!

“Prospero has spent 12 years isolated on an island with his daughter Miranda, a spirit named Ariel, and a monster called Caliban. Everything changes the day that a no-so-accidental shipwreck brings new people to the island. A tale of magic, mischief, revenge, letting go, love, and redemption, The Tempest examines how our past informs our future and affirms the beauty of humankind.”

The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged)

Enjoy the remarkable play everyone is bound to love from September 10th-September 26th! Coutos to writers Adam Long, Daniel Singer, Jess Winfield and director Charles Fee for the passion and dedication put into the show!

“A Riotously Irreverent Romp. Three ambitious actors, clad in classic Converse tennis shoes and armed with an outrageous assortment of outerwear and props, cram the Bard’s entire canon of plays (and sonnets!) into two hours of sheer Elizabethan-esque ecstasy. Need we say more? Buckle your seatbelts, it’s going to be a bumpy ride. This endearingly irreverent and lightning-paced romp through the greatest plays of all time will have you rolling with laughter and jumping in the aisles. Perhaps The Today Show captured its spirit best when they said, ‘If you like Shakespeare, you’ll like this show. If you hate Shakespeare, you’ll love this show!’”
