Learn about our impact.

We make a difference in and for our communities.



Sweet Tea Shakespeare was founded in 2012 with summer productions at the Cape Fear Botanical Garden in Fayetteville, North Carolina. Since that time, the company has expanded into year-round operations in Fayetteville and Raleigh. Our offerings feature regular productions of Shakespeare’s plays, occasional musicals, concerts, streaming productions and small entertainments, a drunk Shakespeare series, and our young company, Green Tea.


Our work is inspired by our communities and the early modern tradition that helped to create Shakespeare. We carry that inspiration forward by creating simple, elemental, magical productions full of rich story, language, character, belonging, charm, and music. Our company is formed around the idea that its contributors shape where it goes. These contributors include our beloved artists, audiences, members, and partners. We’re continually inviting folks to our table to join the work. We’d love for you to join our story and help to shape it.


Sweet Tea Shakespeare is a community. Led by our board of directors and small staff, our community include company members, artists, volunteers, students of all ages, partners, & sponsors.

Our community evolves constantly. We welcome new members, contributors, and friends to join the work on an ongoing basis. Find out ways to join up on our Get Involved page.
