All proceeds from the sale benefit The Shakespeare Theatre’s artistic and educational programs. As a not-for-profit regional theatre, only 58% of the annual cost to produce The Shakespeare Theatre’s season of productions and educational programs is earned through ticket sales. The company relies on contributions from corporate, foundation, and government sources and donations from individuals to maintain its Main Stage, Outdoor Stage and educational programming. Only with such support can The Shakespeare Theatre continue its high-impact initiatives such as Shakespeare LIVE! which brings Shakespeare and other classic works to schools throughout the mid-Atlantic region; the Student Matinee Series which offers middle and high-school students and teachers the opportunity to attend school-time performances of Main Stage productions; and the Summer Professional Training Program which offers young actors, designers, technicians, and administrators hands-on professional training.

One of the leading Shakespeare theatres in the nation, serving 100,000 adults and children annually, The Shakespeare Theatre is New Jersey’s largest professional theatre company dedicated solely to Shakespeare’s canon and other world classics. Through its distinguished productions and education programs, the company strives to illuminate the universal and lasting relevance of the classics for contemporary audiences.

The acclaimed Shakespeare Theatre of New Jersey is an independent, professional theatre company located on the Drew University campus. The Outdoor Stage is located on the campus of the College of St. Elizabeth and the Theatre’s support and education facility is in Florham Park.
