About Newnan Shakes

Newnan Shakespeare in the Park (or Newnan Shakes) is a professional theatre company devoted to building community bonds and providing educational resources by bringing artistically excellent, free productions of the works of William Shakespeare to Newnan, GA. We are a 501c-3 non-profit theatre company now in our third year of operation.

       We are excited to announce that our 2021 offering, Love at a Distance: A Shakespeare Cabaret, will be available to stream for free on the Newnan Cultural Arts Commission’s facebook page this Saturday, October 9th at 10 AM. Join us for an hour of scenes, monologues, and sonnets from Shakespeare’s canon that explore love and its power to overcome whatever barrier stands in its way. With an incredible team of artists from New York, Illinois, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and of course, right here in Newnan, we have created  a unique virtual experience unlike anything Newnan Shakes has ever produced. Join us for some of our favorite scenes, speeches, and sonnets as we celebrate the power of love to cross any divide and keep us connected, no matter what the future brings.  We hope you enjoy Newnan Shakespeare’s 2021 production, Love at a Distance.
