Spokane Shakespeare Society (S3) was founded in 2021 by Spokane locals looking to expand the theatre experiences available for the community of Spokane. A 501(c)(3) nonprofit company, S3 provides pay-what-you-can performances of Shakespeare and other classical works in the summer months. A community-focused organization, S3 is always searching for more partners, more ways to collaborate, and more ways to strengthen the Spokane theatre and arts community. The inaugural season begins August 2021 at the Pavilion in Riverfront Park.


Spokane Shakespeare Society’s mission is to provide professional quality Shakespeare and other classical works to the community in an outdoor venue that highlights the very best of what Spokane has to offer.


Spokane Shakespeare Society envisions a community that enjoys Shakespeare while also enjoying the beauty of Riverfront Park. This community supports its own, provides entertainment in the heart of downtown, and works to be mutually beneficial to its partner organizations. S3 is a facilitator for excellent theatre in Spokane and an inclusive, diverse, and representative organization
