We believe that everyone should enjoy professional theatre without paying for a ticket!

You can help us provide FREE theatre for our Western New York Community!

Are you with us?

Each year SDP provides:

  • Educational experiences for thousands of local children.
  • An appealing draw for tourists visiting the area.
  • Employment for hundreds of local residents.
  • Support for our local business community.
  • FREE professional outdoor theatre – for everyone to enjoy!

Thanks to our supporters, SDP has touched the lives of (literally) millions of people.

SDP is the second oldest and one of the largest outdoor Shakespeare festivals in the country, but SDP is still YOUR community theatre. We exist to serve you and your loved ones – to provide entertainment, tradition, memories, and fun.
