Shakespeare on the Square annually features two of the magnificent plays of Williams Shakespeare, comedies, tragedies and histories, rotated nightly outdoors on Market Square in the heart of downtown Knoxville. From mid-July to mid-August a blanket or a camp chair is all you need to view these performances. Or treat yourself to reserved VIP seating for just $15 per person, including a complimentary bottle of water and local merchant goodie bag. While we perform with no admission charge for general seating, we do appreciate your donations – we’ll pass a basket nightly and suggest a $10 donation per person. We also accept cash or credit cards at the “front of house” table.

THE COMPLETE WORKS OF SHAKESPEARE (ABRIDGED)
July 13, 15, 21, 23, 27, 29, and August 4, 6, 10, & 12

Features all 37 of Shakespeare’s plays, performed in 97 minutes, by three actors. Fast paced, witty, and physical, this show is full of laughter for Shakespeare lovers and haters alike!

TWO GENTLEMEN OF VERONA
July 14, 16, 20, 22, 28, 30, and August 3, 5, 11, & 13

The Two Gentlemen of Verona is commonly agreed to be Shakespeare’s first comedy, and probably his first play. A comedy built around the confusions of doubling, cross-dressing, and identity, it is also a play about the ideal of male friendship and what happens to those friendships when men fall in love.
