The Heart of America Shakespeare Festival was founded in 1991 by Tony Award-winning Broadway Producer, Marilyn Strauss. The Festival launched its first official season in 1993 in Southmoreland Park. Since then, more than 770,000 theatergoers from 42 states and 11 countries have enjoyed the Festival's professional productions. Every summer for the past twenty-seven years, HASF has constructed a stage and theatre space in Southmoreland Park where thousands of visitors come to see FREE professional Shakespeare or Shakespeare-inspired productions. Families and friends gather under the trees to enjoy a picnic supper and are entertained by the Team Shakespeare’s parody, enriched by Show Talk, and have an enjoyable evening of conversation and community with friends and family before the play begins.
The Heart of America Shakespeare Festival offers educational programs for children, teens, and adults throughout the entire year.
