Rome Shakespeare Festival

An Occasion Full of Merry Humour

The only Shakespeare Festival in the state of Georgia – and it’s free so all audiences can enjoy! In 2018, the festival will grow from a one-week festival to a two-week festival, featuring three mainstage productions and two children’s shows by the RSF Young Actor’s Company.

This year, there’s so many things to do for all ages, you might as well think Rome is changing from a Victorian District to an Elizabethan one. Keep reading below for a full schedule of the 2018 festival!
