Conservatory of the Houston Festivals Company

The Houston Shakespeare Festival puts up a season of two Shakespeare plays in repertory every summer. HSF had entertained over half a million theatregoers with free performances at Hermann Park’s Miller Outdoor Theatre since its beginning in 1975. The festival’s audience is as diverse as Houston itself, with many people attending their first live theatre performance.

The Houston Shakespeare Festival has evolved into one of the most important summer entertainment events in Houston. HSF is an Equity-accredited theatre.
