About The Ithaca Shakespeare Company
The Ithaca Shakespeare Company produces outdoor Shakespeare on the beautiful wooded grounds of Cornell Plantations each summer and a winter season in our new indoor facility in Fall Creek Studios. Our productions draw thousands of people each year from throughout the region, across the state, and beyond.
The Ithaca Shakespeare Company is dedicated to presenting the works of William Shakespeare and his contemporaries with clarity and immediacy to a diverse audience, emphasizing dynamic ensemble acting, staging that forges a historical bond with Shakespeare's own theatres, and performances that immerse the audience in the action and emotion of the play. Our approach to Shakespeare is active and exciting, involving close attention to the details of language and character and a strong component of physical action.
We are committed to: providing educational programs and materials of exceptional quality for students, theatre personnel, and the general public; cultivating a supportive and collaborative creative environment for a wide range of local theatre artists; and presenting theatrical experiences that are powerful, moving, exciting, enjoyable, and thought-provoking for viewers of all ages and backgrounds.
