About the Company

The Houston Shakespeare Festival was initiated in 1975 by Sidney Berger, the then current Director of the School of Theatre at the University of Houston. The festival has grown into one of the major events on Houston's summer entertainment calendar, attracting more than 475,000 people in its recent history. Festival audiences are an exciting mix of ethnic groups, young people, adults, and families who are able to experience, perhaps for the first time in an era when entertainment costs are often prohibitive to many, the excitement of live theatre.
