Cincinnati Shakespeare Company

Our Mission
Cincinnati Shakespeare Company is a resident ensemble theatre company bringing Shakespeare and the Classics to life for audiences of all ages.

Our Vision
Cincinnati Shakespeare Company will become a world-class Shakespeare institution, serving as the arts destination for the region with a commitment to the artists, audiences, schools, and communities of Cincinnati.

Cincinnati Shakespeare Company is a professional theater company in Over-the-Rhine. The Company produces classics, the great works, and the works you rarely get a chance to see. These plays are the ones that have stood the test of time. The staging of these plays is thoughtfully crafted to create an engaging experience that will resonate with you, inspire your thoughts, and start conversations.

But plays are only texts without talented theater professionals to reignite them, to invigorate them. Company members include the artistic director, Brian Isaac Phillips, who is responsible for guiding the artistic vision of the theater. Unique to the Cincinnati performing-arts community, Cincinnati Shakespeare Company employs a resident ensemble. Ensemble members are devoted to working with the artistic director to “crack the nut” of each play and reveal the human elements.
