The mission of the South Dakota Shakespeare Festival (SDSF) is to engage, connect and inspire communities by exploring our shared human experiences through inclusive, professional Shakespeare productions and theatre arts education. Our values encompass: access, inclusion, integrity and artistic excellence.

Since 2012, the SDSF has been producing free, world-class, Shakespeare in the Park, in Vermillion, South Dakota, accompanied by a wide array of education and engagement programming, through partnerships with local and regional schools and organizations. We value diversity and inclusion in our work, and seek to create theatre and build audiences that reflect and nourish the diversity of our communities. Since our inception, and in keeping with our mission, all festival events are free and open to the public.
