Theater has the unique power to gather families, friends, neighbors, and visitors together in one electric moment to enjoy the captivating story unfolding before their eyes. We invite you to Central Park this summer to be in the moment and experience this magic for yourself at Free Shakespeare in the Park.
From Ruben Santiago-Hudson’s lush and devastating OTHELLO, to Public Works’ joyful musical adaptation of TWELFTH NIGHT, featuring 120 extraordinary community members on stage, this is the season to be in the Park.
Join us with a gift of $500 or more and help us keep Shakespeare in the Park free for all, all summer, every summer. As thanks for your generous support, we'll save you a seat at the Delacorte Theater.
Last year, we offered thousands of free tickets, provoked dynamic conversations across the country, and spread boundless joy with shows like JULIUS CAESAR and A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S DREAM. This year with your support, we can go even further.
For every new or increased contribution, The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation will match your gift – and then double it.*
