The Cleveland Shakespeare Festival “Romeo & Juliet” performance is made possible by the Ohio Arts Council’s 2021 ArtSTART grant. The Ohio Arts Council is funded in part by state tax dollars allocated by the Ohio Legislature. The OAC is a state agency that funds and supports quality arts experiences to strengthen Ohio communities culturally, educationally and economically. oac.ohio.gov.


Lakeside is thrilled to bring the Cleveland Shakespeare Festival presenting the timeless classic, ‘Romeo and Juliet’ by William Shakespeare, directed by Dusten Welch.

The Cleveland Shakespeare Festival is dedicated to bringing plays of professional quality to audiences in the Greater Cleveland area as a way of encouraging community through theater. By performing outdoors in numerous locations, we reach audience members that would be less likely to travel to a downtown theater or may be uncomfortable in a more traditional theater setting. Making these performances available brings the experience of audience and actor communing through the contemporary performance of classic literature.

The emphasis of company’s local, professional artists is on making the words and poetry of each play accessible to family members of all ages and cultural backgrounds. These practices, all deeply familiar to Shakespeare’s original theatre, allow the plays to act as education, cultural initiation, and contemporary entertainment – an exciting way for communities to expand their understanding of classic theatre and recognize the art form’s value in today’s society.

The Cleveland Shakespeare Festival believes that the power and inspiration of live theater has a positive impact on every life it touches. It is their desire to share this amazing gift with the communities they, as artists, call home.

In the case of inclement weather, this event will be moved to Hoover Auditorium.
