Organizational Culture and Vision

In addition to their community shows, Rome Shakespeare Festival holds master classes, workshops and performances that serve artists, students and the general public. In addition, RSF tours educational programming to elementary, middle and high schools, along with colleges and theaters across Georgia and surrounding states. 


Their vision for long-term success is to have their artistic excellence be recognized nationally and to have their education programs be a national organization.

They want more people to know that they are more than just the organization that has the only Shakespeare Festival in Georgia. They also have high-quality educational programming that fulfills our mission of serving the public good, a program that benefits students, adults and incarcerated populations.
