Founding Artistic Director Jennifer Tober

Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks has been producing free public performances of Shakespeare’s works in the Pittsburgh city parks since 2005. In September 2016 we celebrated our 12th season of shows with 8 public performances of The Comedy of Errors, playing to over 1800 patrons that included people from surrounding counties and states as well as local community members. We had the pleasure of collaborating with the University of Pittsburgh Honors College to present a performance at Pymatuning State Park. And we inaugurated an ongoing collaboration with The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust, providing 2 private student matinees of The Comedy of Errors for a total of 5 public schools and 1 homeschooling group, as well as performing selected scenes as part of The Trust’s Gallery Crawl event.

Thank you for your interest in Pittsburgh Shakespeare in the Parks. Please join us for our 2017 season!
