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 after two years of online programming, we will be returning to the Greenville Street Amphitheater with our 2022 offering, Twelfth Night! Performances will be September 2nd and 3rd at 8pm and September 4th at 2pm. Please check back soon for more information about this production!
