SOC: SHAKESPEARE/SUMMERFEST ORANGE COUNTY
PRESENTS OUR 2017 SEASON!

JOIN US FOR OUR 38th YEAR OF BRINGING PROFESSIONAL SHAKESPEARE TO ORANGE COUNTY... AND MUCH MORE!

Thank you for supporting us at SOC. We are doing some amazing things at the Festival Amphitheater in Garden Grove.

Our attendance has tripled in the past three years as we were named "Best Theatrical Makeover" by Orange Coast Magazine. Our Artistic Director, John Walcutt, set out to fundamentally change the theater in Orange County. Our mission: to make it more inclusive, building bridges between generations and the many cultures in Garden Grove and the surrounding communities. In 2016, we received two special awards: the California Arts Council LOCAL IMPACT grant for "using the Arts to dramatically impact the local community", and a special recognition award for "outstanding contributions to the local community" from The California State Assembly.

We are proud of our heritage, and excited about the future. We are changing theater in Orange County. We hope you will join us this next season!

Thank you to Macy's!
