PSF Sponsors

Each season, before a single line is memorized or a swordfight choreographed, sponsors commit their support to Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival. Without their generosity, ticket prices would double. We thank all of our 2018 sponsors – corporations, individuals and foundations – for their partnership with Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival.

Festival Sponsorships & Benefits

Gifts large and small have real impact at Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival. Donations help build your brand recognition and value with an active, educated audience over an extended period of time by linking you to PSF.
