A special note from the Austin Shakespeare family . . .

We at Austin Shakespeare have struggled to find the right words to express our dismay at the current state of the world. George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Nina Pop, Tony McDade, Ahmaud Arbery, Trayvon Martin and too many more. We acknowledge the struggle of our Black artists and community. We now trade our silence for action. To quote Shakespeare himself:


"Why, sir, I pray, are not the streets as free for me as for you?" (The Taming of the Shrew)


We believe theater can be a catalyst for change. We believe theater can be a venue for difficult, important conversations. We are here to listen and learn. Above all, we support and stand with the Black community during these difficult times . . . and always.  

Ann Ciccolella, Artistic Director        Alex B. Alford, Managing Director
