Accessible, transformative, entertaining classical theater

Thank you!

With your help, our theater weathered the '20-'21 COVID shutdown and returned in the summer of 2021 to bring you A Midsummer Night's Dream—our most successful free Shakespeare In Our Parks tour yet! We were thrilled to be the first live theater many of you had seen in 15+ months. And in early autumn 2021 we were proud to bring you Shakespeare's masterpiece, Hamlet.

We hope as more positive progress toward overcoming the pandemic is made that even more of you will be ready to return to the theater. We have a great season for 2022 shaping up (including breaking exciting new ground for us) and we'll share details about it over the winter. We're particularly excited to resume our Shakespeare In Our Schools touring program this coming spring!

With your support we will continue bringing English Renaissance plays to life as popular entertainment for both the public and schools!


"This is how Shakespeare was meant to be seen--playful, immediate, approachable, and accessible to all."  – Cherry and Spoon

"The show [Chaste Maid] is jam-packed with juicy performances woven together through precise comic pace and timing.  If you’ve never been to a CAE show you may be pleasantly struck by the winning combination of a relaxed atmosphere and an array of first rate actors who really and truly know the classical acting craft and how to make it accessible." – Lavender Magazine

"Go. See them. Classical Actors Ensemble hasn’t just dusted off these old classics.  They’ve reinvented them." – TC Daily Planet

"Our language has changed quite a bit since 1613, but our sense of humor clearly has not." – Aisle Say
