(June 1 – September 29, 2012) Despite its title, the Idaho Shakespeare Festival is not devoted exclusively to plays by the Bard; its repertory includes works from various dramatic periods and genres, and it also serves as an artistic home for emerging regional and national playwrights. Performances are given in a 760-seat, state-of-the-art amphitheater on the site of a habitat reserve that is home to a wide variety of plants and animals including deer, heron, ducks, geese, and the occasional fox. The William Shakespeare Park offers picnicking and river viewing areas; food and beverages are available at Café Shakespeare.

The ISF’s education initiatives include programs and tours for K-12 children and teachers, adult education, interpretive programming, affiliations with universities and cultural organizations, as well as residencies and training opportunities for actors.  A Drama School and Camp Shakespeare are among these initiatives.
