Long Description:
I have been coming to the Idaho Shakespeare Festival for years. It is a nice place to come bring some wine and enjoy a little culture. The theater has changed over the years. Originally the performances took place right down town on the grassy-sloped lawns of One Capital Center. Where Angel's Bar and Grill is now. When Angel's moved to the location in 1981 they asked that the venue be changed. The festival then moved to an area next to a duck pond at Plantation Golf Course. In 1984 the theater was offered a plot of land near the Park Center area From OreIda for $1 a year. As the festival grew the state-of-the-art facility that the theater now enjoys was in the works.

Today, the Festival operates under an agreement with the Idaho Foundation for Parks & Lands, and the Idaho Department of Parks & Recreation. As you wend your way into the theater proper, you'll enjoy native plants, the songs of water birds and glimpses of deer, heron, ducks, geese and an occasional fox.
