The Vision at Portland Shakespeare Project

The Portland Shakespeare Project began operations in July 2011 as a summer seasonal theatre company performing classical works and contemporary works associated with classical material.

Currently planning it’s fifth season, Portland Shakespeare Project programming includes two productions – a fully staged Shakespeare work and a staged reading – in addition to special events.

The company offers a variety of classes for actors and youth, and educational and enrichment programs for audience members.

Future plans call for the expansion of the season, with the addition of at least one show during the year.
