Delaware Shakespeare Festival

Corporate Sponsorship

Enabling everyone to discover the magic of Shakespeare.

Overview

Founded in 2003, the Delaware Shakespeare Festival (DSF) makes classical theatre accessible to all with our professional cast and crew. With help from our corporate sponsors, ticket prices are only $17 ($15 for seniors and $13 students), creating what Delaware Today calls, “summer’s must-do event.”

In 2013, DSF served between 5,000 people, including between over 2,000 children, in Delaware and the surrounding region. We invite you to be a DSF supporter as we enter our twelfth season!
