Shakespeare Festival 2019 is closed for applications. You still have time to get your performance at Shakespeare Festival 2020. 

If you want to apply for Shakespeare Festival please read the following. Read about the application deadline in the bottom of this page. 

The Shakespeare Festival is open air theatre at Kronborg Castle in Elsinore, Denmark. All performances take place outdoors, though the stage is covered.

The Shakespeare Festival has just one stage, and collaborates with companies and artists from across the world, thus long-term planning is an important prerequisite when it comes to organising the festival. Please note that only Shakespeare plays is performed at the festival.

  • is a Shakespeare production
  • can be performed outdoors
  • can be performed in August 
  • can make use of our 300 m2 stage (attach documentation of scenography)
