    • About

      Southwest Shakespeare Company (''SSC'') is the premier professional classical theatre in Arizona, producing or presenting between 7 and 9 shows a year at the Mesa Arts Center, Taliesin West in Scottsdale, and The Madison Center for the Arts in Phoenix. One of the central pillars of SSC's mission is education, so while we don't produce Shakespeare exclusively, our Seasons are a mosaic of classical and curriculum-related material even including new and original works. Patrons come from all parts of the Valley and as far away as Sun City, Casa Grande, North Scottsdale and Fountain Hills. A not-for-profit, SSC's educational programming reached nearly 10,000 children state-wide this year with the help of generous individual and corporate donors.

      Dedicated to making the classics accessible and inclusive to all, SSC makes every effort through seminars, program synopses, director's orientations, classes, talkbacks with the actors and more, to entertain, and inspire audiences from elementary students to the casual theatre-goer. Prices to Southwest Shakespeare shows are extremely reasonable and the discount for our season subscription (the "Bard Card") is the best deal in town!
