The Public Theater's Free Shakespeare in the Park embodies the belief of our visionary founder Joseph Papp that culture belongs to everyone. For more than fifty years, more than five million people have experienced Free Shakespeare under the stars in Central Park. Summer Supporters help make that work possible by making a tax-deductible contribution in support of Free Shakespeare in the Park, and as thanks enjoy a reserved seat at The Delacorte.

Details on our 2017 Free Shakespeare in the Park season will be available soon. To make a gift today, visit our Partners Program.
