Shakespeare at the Columns

Since 2013, Actors Theatre of Missouri has been presenting the works of William Shakespeare at the Springfield Art Museum. Our Shakespeare plays are free and open to the public. Since our first production of Romeo and Juliet, over 2,500 audience members have seen Shakespeare's works brought to life by our actors, designers, and technicians.
