Rhode Island's official state Shakespeare Festival
For over three decades, Colonial Theatre Shakespeare has produced affordable, community-based, professional theatre of the highest quality.
Our annual Shakespeare Festival takes place for three weeks each summer in beautiful Wilcox Park in the heart of Westerly, Rhode Island.

Announcement to Our Loyal Fans
The Colonial Theatre is currently focusing its efforts and energy on a new partnership forged with the Westerly Public Schools. Therefore, we will be taking a one-year hiatus from our traditional, full-fledged Shakespeare production. In keeping with our current focus on students, we will be offering a summer theatre camp.
We are sorry to disappoint our loyal audience members. While you will not see a production in Wilcox Park this summer, we are working on bringing Shakespeare to life to a new generation within the Westerly Public Schools.
See you next year!
