Free Shakespeare on the Common is made possible each year through a combination of grants, sponsorships, and donations collected through the Friends Section program. The Friends Section consists of lawn chairs set in front of the stage for your convenience. Individuals can reserve a chair at a performance with a donation of $60 per chair, with all proceeds going directly towards the cost of the production. Starting July 17, chairs increase to $75 during performance weeks. Online reservations can be made up to 5 hours prior to the performance.
Friends Section chairs are preassigned. You will be seated at the performance by a member of our team. You must select the performance date you would like to attend at time of purchase or seats will not be reserved.
All donations are NON-REFUNDABLE. Proceeds from the Friends Section help keep Shakespeare on the Common free for all!
