"Our only goal is to provide you with high-quality professional productions--a caliber of theatre that is seldom found outside major cities. All of us hope your experience with us, whether it is your first or the latest of many, is not only satisfying but also uplifting, inspiring, and memorable."

-Raymond Caldwell, TSF Founder and Artistic Director


“…we all pay very little for that which is presented at such a high level of quality. Now is the time for all of us to invest in the future of the arts and of theatre at a much higher level.”

-Dr. Bill Holda, Kilgore College President


“The Texas Shakespeare Festival has joined the ranks with the Rangerettes and the oil derricks as being what Kilgore the ‘City of Stars’ is known for.”

-Ronnie Spradlin, City of Kilgore Mayor
