“Catskill Mountain Shakespeare is thrilled to celebrate five years of performances in the Catskills,” says CMS Artistic Director Sarah Reny “This season we're diving into exciting new territory producing our first tragedy Julius Caesar. But that's not all – we're continuing our

expansive Outreach Program and also launching our inaugural CMS Youth Company in August!” 

Inspired by the beauty in nature, Catskill Mountain Shakespeare creates professional, immersive theatrical experiences that foster diversity, inclusion and equity for all. CMS believes outdoor summer theater provides a collective space for the local community, weekenders, and mountaintop visitors to enjoy live art together. To achieve this mission, CMS garners wide support from patrons, business owners and investors and seeks out local, site-specific opportunities for performances with majestic landscapes that uplift accessibility and leave a minimal carbon footprint.
