The Studio @ 620 is bringing SHAKESPEARE IN THE CITY back to Williams park! Last year's partnership with St. Petersburg Shakespeare Festival was just the beginning--this year we're again pairing up to bring another artistic adaptation of Shakespeare's works to the city!

"The Taming of the Shrew" will be directed by Studio 620  Artistic Director and Founder Bob Devin Jones, co-directed by Veronica Matthews of the St. Petersburg Shakespeare Festival.  Together they'll create a unique performative experience for the entire community.
Performances will run over the weekends of November 7-10 and 14-17, 2019 in downtown St. Petersburg's historic Williams Park.  Admission will be free and open to all who want to attend.  

Bring a blanket or a chair to sit on the lawn and enjoy the fine Florida fall weather!

In an effort to make "The Taming of the Shrew" accessible to everyone in of our community, we are offering free admission, for a world class presentation! However, free to attend doesn't mean free to produce-- a production of this size comes with equally large expenses, which is why your contributions are so important. We're asking you to help support the success of this landmark production with a financial contribution. YOU can make this play happen for everyone!

Make a contribution to our Go Fund Me campaign set up specifically for this production OR make a donation through our website.

Your gift will help us cover production costs including: actor salaries, creative team salaries, stage crew, production expenses (lighting, sound, set, costumes and props) -- You'll feel good knowing that you had a part in presenting one of Shakespeare’s most beloved works!
