Aaand here's Romeo and Juliet a performed by teddy bears...we're all really missing live Shakespeare performances, so this is how we're getting by in the meantime.
I saw my first Cedar Waxwing today at Idaho Shakespeare Park (thank you to the nice guy working there for the great bird-watching tips)-It was an awesome day!
Lunch-time for the Great Blue Heron today(3 July 2020) at Shakespeare Park
Hello Idaho Shakespeare. Thought you might enjoy what we've been working on during lockdown. It's King Lear as performed by teddy bears. Hope you're all well and happy.
Is there some reason I can't get anyone from the box office to answer a phone or return my message that maybe I don't know. I want to spend a few thousand dollars in Christmas gifts. Should I think of something else?
I'm visiting Idaho on business for the first time and would LOVE to try and catch the show Wednesday night.. if anyone has a ticket and isn't planning on attending I'll buy from you! Seems totally booked up at this point... 😢
Looking for Shakespeare Night tickets for tonight’s show The Music Man. Anyone got 2 tickets they want to sell?
Music Man was amazing! Such great talent. Singing and dancing was excellent.
Thank you for such a magical evening! The actors were incredible and the venue is outstanding! We will never forget the stage experience!! We will be back!
Friends and I went to see Taming of the Shrew last night. Wow, what a fabulous performance and even more wonderful to see so many people on the stage
who do not look like me! Congratulations and kudos to you ISF for bringing such beautiful diversity to our homogeneous Boise, Idaho! Very well done. Can't wait for the next one.

Since 1977 Idaho Shakespeare Festival has been bringing world class theater to life in a stunning outdoor amphitheater. Shakespeare under the stars!

The mission of Idaho Shakespeare Festival is to produce great theater, entertain and educate. ISF's mainstage season takes place in a world class state of the art outdoor amphitheater located in a unique habitat reserve. Picnicking is encouraged and food is available onsite from Cafe Shakespeare. A beloved community tradition- Shakespeare under the stars is not to be missed! ISF's educational tour
