Welcome to Shakespeare Royal Oak

Since 2001, Shakespeare Royal Oak has presented Michigan's premier outdoor Shakespeare festival with the area's best professional and emerging professional artists, in a one-of-a-kind outdoor summer setting. We also offer education programs for grades 1-8 (KidsAct!) and grades 9-12 (SRO Teen Ensemble). Through the years, we've entertained thousands, and employed hundreds of local artists, many of whom have gone on to succeed in theater, television and film. Our summer students learn creative thinking, empathy, and problem solving skills, as well how fun it is to just make friends and do a show. SRO has received many accolades from community and state leaders, and has garnered its fair share of artistic awards, too. Most importantly, we continue to create a sustaining movement of artistic and community excellence, thanks to our artists, patrons and sponsors. So bring your family and friends to enjoy this experience as we continue making magic in the park for you. Welcome to Shakespeare Royal Oak!
