The professional theatre company in residence at Oglethorpe University, Georgia Shakespeare is one of two LORT (League of Regional Theatres) companies operating in the state of Georgia.

Dedicated to the production of the works of William Shakespeare and other enduring authors, Georgia Shakespeare annually mounts a full summer repertory season of three professional productions as well as an annual series of fall productions.  With an over 20-year history and one of the largest audience bases of any theatre in the southeast, Georgia Shakespeare enjoys a national notoriety that is both commercial and critical.

Recent hits include The Merry Wives of Windsor, Two Gentlemen of Verona, Julius Caesar, and Arthur Miller’s modern classic, Death of a Salesman. Georgia Shakespeare's relationship with Oglethorpe University's theatre program fosters many opportunities for student involvement. Oglethorpe students have performed on stage with Georgia Shakespeare's professional acting company in all of the shows listed above, as well as served as technical, directing, and public relations interns, and house management and box office staff. Georgia Shakespeare provides an outstanding opportunity for our students to gain experience and connections in the world of professional theatre.
