Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival


Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival celebrates its 30th anniversary season!

Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival (PSF) has been entertaining audiences for 30 years with world-class professional theatre productions. Each summer 40,000+ visitors enjoy more than 200 blockbuster musicals, comedies, Shakespeare, children’s theatre, and other classic performances. 

Award-winning actors, directors, and designers from around the country, come to PSF each summer to produce Broadway caliber performances close to home. Before the show, enjoy live music “on the green” with a selection of artisan sandwiches, salads, fresh fruit parfaits, and delectable sweets at the Shakespeare Café. Or pack your own picnic, complete with a bottle of cheer, and relax in the ambiance of the beautiful renaissance style music. Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival is the professional theatre at DeSales University.
