South Dakota Shakespeare Festival,

at a Distance!

Welcome to South Dakota Shakespeare Festival, at a Distance! We are pleased to bring you this programming so we can still be together even though we must be apart. Many thanks to partnering organizations, Vermillion Public Library, the Vermillion Cultural Association, Red Bird Balloons, the National Music Museum, and Hy-Vee, for their work in creating this wonderful week for our community. Also, be sure to check out our new Online Resources page for links to all things Shakespeare. As always, all of our programming is "Free Will" donation.


We look forward to coming back strong, and reconnecting with our audiences, artists, and community face-to-face with an amazing Festival in 2021.
