Shakespeare in the Park

The Mercer Island Arts Council and Mercer Island Parks & Recreation have partnered with Seattle Shakespeare Company/Wooden O since 1994 to bring quality outdoor theater to Mercer Island. Find a spot in our open seating amphitheater at Luther Burbank Park, and watch William Shakespeare's stories come to life in their originally intended setting. All performances are FREE!

Shakespeare in the Park 2019 - Thanks for another great season!

Thanks for another fabulous season of outdoor theater in Luther Burbank Park!
More than 5,000 audience members joined us for productions of Romeo and Juliet and Twelfth Night at Shakespeare in the Park this summer. Thanks to all who met us at the amphitheater; we'll see you next year!

Thank you 2019 supporters!
