The Camden Shakespeare Festival is a professional, non-profit theatre committed to producing Shakespeare’s plays chiefly in the Camden Amphitheatre. We believe that Shakespeare plays speak to everyone, because of their universal themes, their unforgettable characters, and their extraordinary poetry. These plays are produced in association with the Camden Public Library.
Romeo and Juliet will be performed in the Amphitheatre. Much Ado About Nothing will be performed at High Mountain Hall.

*Please note: The Saturday, July 29 performance of Romeo and Juliet will play indoors at St. Thomas’s Episcopal Church, regardless of the weather. This is owing to a scheduling conflict with the Amphitheatre.
What if it rains? The show will go on, rain or shine
In the event of heavy rain, we will perform in our indoor venue at St Thomas’s Episcopal Church, 33 Chestnut Street in Camden. Because of limited seating at the rain venue, we will give priority seating to those who have purchased tickets in advance, and then to those who have made reservations, in the order that the reservations were received. For those ticketholders who are only interested in seeing the play performed outdoors, we will honor their tickets at any future performance. In the event that heavy rain or lightning begins during a performance, we reserve the right to delay, pause or cancel the performance. Tickets will be honored at a future performance
When will the decision to perform indoors be made?
On days when rain is forecast, we will make the decision to perform outside by 4 pm at the latest. Please check The Camden Shakespeare Festival Facebook page or website for rain information on show days. That is the only place that it will be posted.
