Staten Island Shakespearean Theatre

Who We Are/Our History

The Staten Island Shakespearean Theatre Company is a not-for-profit theatre group started 25 years ago by a small group of people with a combined love of theatre and the works of William Shakespeare. However, they soon realized that producing the Bard's work—while a noble idea—could not always pay the rent. The group began to branch out, still producing Shakespeare, but adding a few more contemporary 'audience pleasers' to their schedule. Through a period of trial and error, the company began to pick up steam and develop an audience.

Over the past 24 seasons the company has grown into a viable and visible theatre in the New York City area. Our seasons consist of 7 productions a year, attracting audiences, directors and actors (both Union and Non-Union), from all over the United States. We have continued to offer a variety of productions ranging from original works to contemporary comedies, dramas and musicals, as well as the works of Shakespeare and other classic playwrites. Recently, we presented the Maxwell Anderson thriller THE BAD SEED, featuring special guest artist Patty McCormack, star of the original Broadway and film productions, in the role of Mrs. Daigle.

As we enter our 25th season, we are pleased that - to paraphrase a Sondheim lyric - We're still here! The following pages will offer you further insight into our history as well as our present and future plans. If you like what you see, give us a call and join us for our 25th anniversary season.
