The Central Coast Shakespeare Festival began in 1990 as part of Artemis,  A Theatre Company.  When Artemis dissolved in 1996, the Shakespeare Festival was incorporated as its own non profit theatre company and in 1997 produced  its first independent season at Cal Poly's Ornamental Horticulture Center.


Since then, the festival has performed in several venues around the county including: 


Camp Ocean Pines, Cambria

San Luis Obispo Little Theatre

Bellevue Santa Fe Charter School, Avila Beach

River Oaks Amphitheatre, Paso Robles


We look forward to seeing you at our 6th season at Filipponi Ranch  Summer 2019 - July 11 through August 3.
