The Shakespeare Society

All members at the Benefactor and higher levels of membership may elect to join the Shakespeare Society. The Society meets several times a year to gain an insider’s view of the art and craft of theater, and to support the educational programs and operations of the Festival.

Foundation for Idaho Shakespeare Festival

The Foundation was established in 2002, as a separately governed entity, to provide structure and oversight for planned giving and bequests to the Festival that support on-going programming, and to provide an endowment to support long-range projects. The Foundation is the vehicle for such gifts as life insurance policies, charitable gift annuities, remainder trusts and others.

Education Scholarships

The Drama School is committed to providing students with skills and experiences that will encourage and enable them as both artists and members of society. Theater professionals teach our acting classes which are offered each fall, spring and summer for students in grades K-12.

The Drama School offers scholarships for all ages and abilities, and for each class in the program. Each year, individuals, corporations and foundations make scholarships available for students in need. Please contact the Festival at (208) 429-9908 ext. 3 to donate towards a scholarship or to apply.
