Since 2005, SITV has built and maintained a classical theatrical company of such excellence that it has overflowed its local boundaries, created a renowned artistic center in Southern California’s Wine Country, and strived to present work of the highest quality, offering company members, audiences and students the richest possible learning experiences
Modeled after the OSF (Ashland, Oregon Shakespeare Festival) which draws over half a million theatre goers annually, SITV serves as a tourism draw for our local restaurants, hotels, wineries and other business establishments.
Finally, Teachers and students are a vital part of our audience. We passionately believe in the power of theatre to change lives, especially young lives. SITV’s educational outreach to our Temecula Valley area schools has brought Shakespearean performances and workshops to the classroom, and originated a theatrical competition in which students have studied, created, and performed the literature of Shakespeare. We are excited to launch our first Youth Production Theater Camp this July.
In 2020, SITV celebrated it’s Fifteenth Anniversary with a series of special events and performances. We look forward to welcoming old and new friends in helping us shape the next decade, in which we will endeavor to broaden our theatrical programs, expand our educational outreach programs and theatrical competition, whilst reaching a growing international audience.
