Vallejo Shakespeare in the Park aims to provide professional performance opportunities to Bay Area actors of color, various gender identity, and women through non-traditional casting. We want our productions to reflect the community in which they are performed and help our audience connect to classical theater with exciting contemporary staging.
We believe the arts are an important part of the fabric of a community and we want to do our part to ensure a thriving arts environment and help raise the value of the arts as a public benefit. We present a “bare-bones” production, concentrating on the actor’s performances and honest storytelling, with minimal set and modern dress.
We also participate in Vallejo’s Independence Day parade, a 167 year tradition, which will be on a Saturday this year. Participation is voluntary.
