Davis Shakespeare Ensemble is a professional non-profit 501(c)3 theater company with a mission to revitalize theater arts and education in the Davis and Sacramento area. As a cultural resource for the region, we believe in modernizing and adapting classical texts in order to share the magic of drama’s greatest stories. Our educational programs instill in young people the importance of working together to create art that celebrates truth and explores the human condition. As arts advocacy continues to be cut out of state and national budgets, we take pride in our duty to make up for the shortfall.

During the past seven years, DSE has achieved many notable accomplishments, like being named by SN&R in 2016 as one of Sacramento’s Best Professional Theatre Companies, establishing an experienced Advisory Board, expanding the summer festival, and introducing new arts education programs for youth in the community.

We are thrilled to share the 2017 Davis Shakespeare Festival with the Davis community and beyond. Now, we would like to give you the opportunity to be a part of the excitement. As we expand our network of supporters, we ask that you will consider becoming a festival sponsor. Both individuals and businesses will receive fantastic visibility through sponsorship as we anticipate thousands of audience members will put Davis Shakespeare Festival on the map as a destination for great theater.

We are excited to offer you a role in the development of this event and look forward to sharing more about what sponsoring the Davis Shakespeare Festival can provide for you.
