Furthering artistic practice and deepening community connections online

Run the Canon: 

Cal Shakes Resident Dramaturg Philippa Kelly will be “running the canon” offering a new 10-minute video lecture each week now through Christmas. 37 weeks, all of Shakespeare’s 37 plays.

* We’re kicking it off with The Tempest.


Direct Address will include a series of panel discussions, interviews, podcasts and webinars offering industry and community support as well as behind-the-scenes insight beginning last week with two unemployment webinars for freelance artists and arts workers.

  • In the first session, actor Safiya Fredricks outlined the application process for freelance artists.
  • And in the second session, former Artistic Director of Playwrights Foundation Amy Mueller spoke with Cal Shakes HR consultant Neera Gunn about the new changes introduced by CARES Act.


#ShelterHereabouts – Inspired by Trinculo’s line from The Tempest, #ShelterHereabouts are a series of “micro-commissioned” monologues performed by Bay Area actors.

  • First up, Phil Wong performs the program’s namesake speech.
  • Stay Tuned for more awesome programming from Cal Shakes!
