Shakespeare at Fenway Park

Commonwealth Shakespeare Company 20th Anniversary Season Kicks Off with “Shakespeare at Fenway” On September 19, 2014

BOSTON, MA - April 10, 2014 - Commonwealth Shakespeare Company (CSC) will celebrate its 20th year serving the community in 2015. It will kick off its anniversary season on September 19, 2014, with a once-in-a-lifetime gift to the City of Boston — Shakespeare at Fenway. This is a first-ever event of this kind to be presented at a major league ballpark.

Nearly one year after the Red Sox’s inspiring World Series win at Fenway, CSC will bring a starting line-up of local and national celebrities to the iconic ballpark for an evening of famous scenes from William Shakespeare’s plays. Directed by CSC’s Founding Artistic Director Steven Maler.

“All the ballpark's a stage, and all the men and women merely players,” said Red Sox President/CEO Larry Lucchino. “We look forward to welcoming the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company to Fenway Park as they perform scenes from one of the world’s pre-eminent dramatists. We hope our ‘lyric little bandbox of a ballpark’ will be the perfect backdrop to the plays of the Bard and the performances of the Commonwealth Shakespeare Company’s talented artists.”

“Shakespeare at Fenway builds on a long and productive partnership between Commonwealth Shakespeare Company and the City of Boston,” Mayor Martin J. Walsh noted.  “From free performances on Boston Common to workshops in our public schools, Commonwealth Shakespeare Company has made these great works accessible to all.  Thanks to their generosity, even more citizens and non-profit groups will now be able to experience Shakespeare at this spectacular evening inside the legendary Fenway Park.” 

CSC will offer a significant number of these seats free of charge to the public and local non-profit organizations including CSC’s key educational partners.  They will also host an exclusive post-performance fundraiser with the actors to generate support for the next 20 years of CSC’s service to the community.

Free and paid tickets will go on sale on the CSC website in the late August.
