Our mission is to make Shakespeare and the performing arts available to everyone regardless of age, ethnicity, financial status or level of education.
Why Free: PSC’s mission is to make the performing arts available to everyone regardless of age, ethnicity, financial status or level of education. Our goal is to encourage broad participation in the arts and make the arts an active part of community life here in Petaluma.
Why Shakespeare: The timeless appeal of Shakespeare’s plays reveal truths about the range of human emotions that still resonates today. His profoundly eloquent language explores love, jealousy, growing older and much more that encompasses the human condition.
Why by the River: Just as theaters in Shakespeare’s time were open to the sky, our performances by the river make the art and artistry more accessible to all. Performing in public space allows us all to feel welcome and that reminds us that art is a part of our everyday lives.
Our board works hard to bring you free Shakespeare by the river. A labour of love!
We are growing our board! If you are interested in participating in Free Shakespeare by the River, please contact us!
We're looking for a few good people to help us make it happen. Join the team!
