Searching for Shakespeare

Ames, Iowa

Searching For Shakespeare is an Ames-area community theater group that puts on Shakespeare in the parks, street theater at fairs and festivals (such as the Octagon Arts Festival and the Des Moines Renaissance Festival), and small-scale productions with local venues, performers and volunteers of all ages and experience levels. Our auditions are open to the public. We welcome you to get involved!

Founded in 2001, our group is a registered nonprofit supported by community donations. Although we do not have a building of our own, we have a history of partnership with organizations with similar missions in our community. We have performed in Bandshell Park and Tom Evans Park in downtown Ames, the Octagon Arts Center, the Ames City Hall Auditorium, and the ISU Memorial Union M-Shop.
