Build a Re-Creation of the 1614 Globe in Stratford

Your Support Can Help Get Us Started

The former grounds of the American Shakespeare Festival Theatre will soon house the world’s only Timber Framed Re-creation of Shakespeare’s 1614 Globe Theatre, as part of the American Globe Center Campus, which also includes a Modern Performing Arts Center and Multi-function/Event Space - the Stratford Playhouse. 

Stratford, CT will become home to a true destination for the region, the nation, and the world - presenting engaging, entertainment-guaranteed classical theatre, alongside the best of today’s hits, to thousands of visitors.

We are a group of established theatre and business professionals with a proven track record of funding and building commercially successful Shakespeare re-creation theatres, providing excellence in entertainment, education, and economic development.

Your donation will go directly to our 1614 Globe Kickoff Fund, which will help us provide excellence in:
- Architectural Design
- An Education Endowment
- A Design Symposium
- A Globe-Building Timber Workshop
- Feasibility, Transportation, and Site Studies
- Consultants for IDEA - Inclusivity, Diversity, Equity and Accessibility

Please join us now - as a member of our Kickoff Coalition, you will be entitled to a free season pass to the Globe yard, to see the action close up and personal - you'll be a part of the show!
