Each summer over 13,000 people gather in parks in and around Montréal to delight in the language of the Bard and in the magic of live theatre. Our audiences are comprised of all ages and economic/cultural backgrounds. Given that the tour visits parks in very different neighborhoods, and because the shows are offered free of charge (with donations graciously accepted) our tour has always been a highly accessible cultural experience.

Get Shakespeare in Your Park


Shakespeare-in-the-Park is a non-profit arts organization that believes in bringing live, classically-based theatre to Montreal and Quebec communities at no charge to the audience.To make this happen, we rely on a network of support from the the provincial and municipal arts councils, foundations and individual donors, and from the boroughs and parks where we perform. This funding covers expenses like: artist’s fees (actors, designers, etc) equipment and vehicle rentals, costumes, set and props expenses, production and administrative salaries.

We love expanding our tour to include new parks and new communities. We want to perform for you and your community but we need your help in order to make this a reality!
