"The Comedy of Errors is fun, fast paced and deliciously clever...a joyful tale told well! Kudos to cast and crew." - Greg Coe

"Timing, choreography, staging - all spot on!" - Lynn Weynand




Island Shakespeare Festival is thrilled to announce an end of the season $15,000 Challenge Gift! However, it is contingent on getting a match. That means that the next $15,000 raised will be matched dollar for dollar! So, the Board of Directors are sending out a call to our patrons who enjoyed the shows this year and invite you to help meet that match. We had a phenomenal summer and are well underway to planning our 2018 season, including our first ever winter offering. This is a very special opportunity to help ISF to continue to bring quality Shakespeare Theatre to all!













"Seagull is totally absorbing and all who like theatre will like it and there are chuckles." - Pam Schell

"[Seagull] was powerful, well acted, and the adaptation brilliant...it's like a dream that continues to simmer in your unconscious long after you've awoken." - Joni Takanikos

"Saw The Comedy of Errors last night. Superb! Outstanding performance by all the actors! A must see!" - Mark Dancer

"Saw [Hamlet] last night. It was wonderful! Stellar acting - rivaling Ashland's OSF." - Laurie McCollum

"Wonderful production of Hamlet...So many achievements in this most difficult of plays. Excellent pace, depth, range, poignancy. Inspired directorial choices. Engaging from the first moments to the last. Congratulations to everyone involved. Thank you, ISF. Beautiful work." - David Churchill
