Located in historic Staunton, the American Shakespeare Center recovers the joys and accessibility of Shakespeare’s theatre, language and humanity. We perform year round in the world’s only recreation of Shakespeare’s own indoor theatre, the Blackfriars Playhouse. Frommer’s says that “this stunning re-creation of the first indoor theater in the English-speaking world...is, in itself, a reason to visit Staunton.”

This 300-seat Renaissance-style theatre offers an intimate space to see the Bard’s plays in a fast paced, spirited style where the audience is always part of the show. See for yourself why the Washington Post calls our performances “shamelessly entertaining” and the Boston Globe says they’re "phenomenal...bursting with energy."



Admission Fee: $12-$45
