Celebrating its 37th year, San Francisco Shakespeare Festival brings its performance of As You Like It to Downtown Redwood City for 3 weekends in August! Shakespeare in the Park will offer 3 evening shows on Saturdays and 3 late afternoon shows on Sundays while providing an opportunity to see high quality, professional theater in the relaxing outdoor setting of Sequoia Campus, free of charge. Treat yourself to some Shakespeare this August, for a moment that is sure to please.  

Free Shakespeare in the Park began in 1983, with its debut production of The Tempest in Golden Gate Park, San Francisco. It is now one of the major free Shakespeare programs in the nation. Free Shakespeare in the Park provides an opportunity for everyone to see high quality, professional theater at no cost.

About the Venue

  • The shows are about 2½ hours long and held outdoors on the Sequoia High School Campus lawn. You are responsible for your own seating, so please remember to bring a blanket or lawn chair to the event to sit on. If you have higher-seated chairs, please be mindful to move your seating towards the back or sides of the crowd so to not block the view of others.
  • It can get pretty dark by the end of the show. A flashlight could be very helpful to guide you safely across the lawn. 
  • Pack a picnic dinner or pick-up takeout from one of the many fabulous nearby restaurants. 
  • There are no dogs allowed at this venue.
