Moose Hall Theatre Company / Inwood Shakespeare Festival

The Inwood Shakespeare Festival (ISF) was conceived and developed by Ted Minos as a way to bring theatre to the greater Inwood community.  ISF’s first production was launched in Inwood Hill Park on the scenic peninsula August 4, 2000. Moose Hall Theatre Company is honored to produce and develop the Inwood Shakespeare Festival for the wonderful community of Inwood! 

"I believe that the performing arts has a vital place and earned its public space with FREE accessible, exceptional, drama, music and dance for everyone in our parks.

Help us continue and grow a cultural legacy; YOUR Inwood Shakespeare Festival, for generations to come, in our beloved, Inwood Hill Park Peninsula.  Come together!"
