Idaho Shakespeare Festival Sold Out

Update from Idaho Shakespeare Festival Artistic Director Charles Fee. Tickets for the season are sold out, in light of what the seating might look like for the remaining three shows.

Greetings Dear Patrons,
We miss you. Especially since, in another reality, we would be deep into rehearsals, excitedly looking forward to welcoming you to our 2020 season opening this month.
Instead, we write today with an update on our ticketing process. It is now clear that we must stop all further sales to the Festival’s 2020 season and we can no longer exchange tickets from cancelled performances into future performances – we are in fact ALL SOLD OUT for the summer!

To all who have responded so generously to our difficult decision to cancel both Much Ado About Nothing and Ain’t Misbehavin’ by donating your tickets to support the future of the Festival– you have our deepest thanks, your support means the world to us. Beyond our ticket holders, the generosity of our corporate Sponsors, Foundations, and annual Members has been truly inspiring.

We do not have a clear picture yet what summer will hold for the Festival going forward. We hope with all our hearts that we can bring our theater to life this season with our remaining productions. In the coming days and weeks we will share any changes as soon as decisions have been reached with clarity. Until then, know that we stand by you just as you have stood by us!

Thank you for understanding. If you have questions about existing reservations please call our box office to leave a message at 208-336-9221 or email If you have not already, please feel free to fill out a form by clicking here to aid in processing existing cancelled tickets. Our box office team is steadily working to be sure every patron is cared for.

“For it falls out
That what we have we prize not to the worth
Whiles we enjoy it, but being lacked and lost,
Why, then we rack the value, then we find
The virtue that possession would not show us
While it was ours.”
― William Shakespeare, Much Ado About Nothing
