Western Summer Shakespeare is a longstanding tradition in the London community. It is outdoor theatre, staged on campus at Western University. The first Western Summer Shakespeare performance took place on 4 August 1981, making it the longest running campus, or indeed outdoor, Summer Shakespeare in Canada – longer than the Dream in High Park by two years!

We welcome participation – both on and off the stage – from students, staff, and friends of Western University, Fanshawe College, and from the wider London community. Auditions are normally scheduled in March-April (before classes end), and the show is rehearsed at Western in May-July. In casting the show, priority should be given to students, though all members of the community are welcome to audition and a diverse cast is welcome. Our productions run typically for five to ten nights, usually during July or early August.
