Providing professional theatre to the under served area of East Texas.

 "...indisputably the best Shakespeare festival in Texas." Austin American Statesman.   Since, 1986, the Texas Shakespeare Festival has been providing professional summer repertory theatre in the intimate, actor friendly, and air-conditioned comfort of the Van Cliburn Theatre on the campus of Kilgore College.   Our dream is to see TSF reach its full potential and the most important part is you - your attendance, your involvement, and your financial assistance.

To make a dream come true requires the boldness to make a commitment. Can we count on you? 

 As the poet Goethe wrote:

"Whatever you can do, or dream you can, begin it. Boldness has genius, power, and magic in it." 

 Thank you for dreaming with us, and for the magic that you have already wrought: 1. TSF was developed to establish a professional summer theatre based in Kilgore, TX.   2. Offers high caliber actors, designers, and directors the luxury of working with dramatic literary masterpieces.   3. Dedicated to providing an opportunity for theatre artists to work in an environment that is both nurturing and humane.   4. TSF hopes to also provide an environment that creates a spirit of trust, collaboration and mutual respect.
