We need your help to keep high-quality, professional productions of Shakespeare FREE for our community. The Festival exists because of the combined donations of every individual who enjoys the Festival and cares about making quality arts experiences available to the entire city. While we enjoy support from a long list of foundations, businesses and public entities, we also depend on the generosity of individuals like you—the people who attend each summer and enjoy Shakespeare and the community spirit that fills Southmoreland Park under the summer sky.
We are deeply committed to keeping the Heart of America Shakespeare Festival accessible to families with children, young adults and people on a limited budget. It speaks volumes about the nature of Kansas City that our Festival is one of only a handful of FREE Festivals still in existence across the country.
Please consider a contribution to the Festival today. No matter the size of your gift, it makes a real difference. In return, we promise you another summer of great theatre in a beautiful park, life-changing education programs for young people and adults, and the deep satisfaction that comes from being able to say, “It’s FREE because of me.”
Your contribution may be MADE ONLINE HERE or mailed to the Festival office at 3732 Main Street, Kansas City, MO 64111.
